Hey guys, i have a problem with my computer, from time to time at random for example i am sitting on google chrome and just browsing when it suddenly stops working, i cant press any buttons but my mouse is moving fine, i go to skype then to check if its only google chrome and skype also freezes i can click on anything and all the computer processes just stop all of a sudden, and after a while it all starts to work at the same time just suddenly. I checked and my cpu usage at that time is like 10%. :/  Any ideas?

Maybe you are full at your cache memory. In browser, go to:
Mozilla Firefox:
→ History → Clear Recent History
Time range to clear: → Everything

Google Chrome:

Exit the browser and re-open it.

Another thing you may want to consider is turning
off your anti-virus -- but only momentarily. As long
as you remain on YouTube (and don't scamper off
to other websites), you will be okay, because you
cannot get a virus from YouTube. :D
