    My comp when i run a few programmes at the same time freezes for mili second, then goes to normal like every 5 seconds. when i listen to a song it freeze for a sec then continue. Is it a hardware prob or a virus?

    if its freezing for like a millisecond then id say theres nothing to worry bout. prob just to do with the RAM and all the speed stuff inside your computer.

    if your still worrying then you should do a virus scan with your usual firewall, and just to be sure you could download another free firewall and do a virus scan with that. but be careful which firewall you download, cause some are dodgy. i would recommend:

    AVG Anti-Spyware,
    SpywareBlaster,
    Spybot Search and Destroy,
    Windows Defender (haven't tried this, used the rest though)

    but as i said before be careful

    edit: by the way i haven't put those link there

    if it's a prob w/ the memory; I suggest you google memtest86 and download that and make a boot cd---it'll test your mem for errors so that way you'll know if that's causing the freezes

    btw; what are your hardware specs??? Because the reason why it would be hanging if you have MULTIPLE programs open and you have a single core processor would simply be because it can't handle having that many open......if it's dual core; than we got a diff. story
