Since I installed SP2 on my PC using Windows XP Home it has started to
freeze every now and then. It usually happens when I am away at lunch or
just having a break. It doesn't happen every day but it is happening more
often. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi

When you have been there and the PC has frozen, do you see any error
messages? If not, have a look in the Event Viewer to see if there are any
error entries that may point towards the problem.

Sounds like it's overheating to me - which has nothing whatsoever to do with
SP2. Check to see if the fans are clear of dust and, if they are, consider
adding more.
