My computer running WinXP keeps freezing up.
If left unattended for more than an hour, when I return everything is
frozen. Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't work either. What can be causing this
problem?

TIA

Can't tell you much, but someone will be along shortly to offer advice. In
the meantime, you might like to look for earlier posts on the same subject.
And as for posting, whatever you do, don't post in HTML. And if you want to
post test messages, please use a TEST group.

Disable your screensaver. See if your power settings at one hour are doing
anything like shutting down the drives, etc.

Run a full and updated virus scan.

Install and run Ad Aware and remove anything it finds.
