If there are no changes to the hardware,then start by checking that the power supply and cpu fans are operating

Check for overheating the cpu could be overheating ,which could cause the system to freeze

Check that power supply can provide adequate voltage to motherboard and peripherals.

Check the memory modules to insure they are seated properly

Update the video drivers

If the above does not help,depending on the system age it may be the motherboard.

The question is rather vague as to determine what may be causing the problem,post could have included the type of system and its cpu speed.

Hi,
My guess would be that an app is intermittently consuming most of the processor cycles making it look as if the box is 'freezing'. Try monitoring the processes in task manager, and try selectively stopping processes to see if that has any effect...

Does the system meets the XP requirements ?
APPS+XP O/S does take a lot of memory!!!

I have 512MB or ram and usually uses 300MB of RAM

Applications can take a lot of memory like Microsoft Offices/Adobe Photoshop/etc.. are RAM eaters!
