Typically a system that is freezing while you are working would indicate a couple of things.

1. You have an overheating condition.
2. There is a driver file conflict on your system.


Check your case to make sure you have it fully enclosed. No open slots, good circulation inside. Most motherboards have some type of hardware monitoring. This will tell you how fast your cpu fan is running and how hot it is running. Check this out.

2. Boot into safe mode and move around in there for awhile. If it doesn't freeze then, you know it some type of driver issue.

Depending on what OS your operating under its good advice to run sfc.exe from the run line, choosing to verifiy all files and replace as needed..

Good Luck
