ummm TEST YOUR HARDWARE

memtest

furmark
linpack

and btw your pc is low end for today, or beyond low end actually, and is of poor generic quality etc (VIA chipset, pcchips motherboard, etc)

^ At least it's a dual core, low end would be the 1.5GHz Celeron M (Core technology tho I think) in my laptop, or the Pentium 4 in one of my desktops.

At that age, it probably has bad capacitors on the mobo and/or in the PSU. Google "Bad capacitors" for information.

Try one stick of RAM at a time - bad RAM cards can cause strange behaviors such as you are seeing.

Most freezes are caused by either RAM incompatabilities or a overheated CPU. And given your CPU is a Pentium D, I'd be leaning toward heat...

Download Realtemp and report what temperatures are being reported.
