My PC freezes up periodically whenever I scroll down a page. My mouse freezes and the only option is to restart my PC. What to do?

Hard locks are almost always an indication of a hardware problem. Since it happens while scrolling I'd suspect the video card or driver.

Could also be a heat problem. When were the heatsinks and fans last cleaned?
