Computer stop responding

Hi Guys,
Here is my problem:
My Computer stop responding after a while I am on the Net...It happens more often when I scroll down a Page or when I am Playing Chess in Yahoo web-site, Which uses Java " The cup of coffee to be clear".
Well, When it stops nothing works...Mouse is Still and CNTRL+ALT+CANC Doesn't work....So the only solution is to keep pressed the switch on my Laptop for About 5 secs and the PC will shut Down....After that I re- press normally the switch to start my Pc, which before loading windows will do the scan because the irregular shut down...and it's normal....But here is the Curios Thing:
When it finishes the scan the solution The answer is "Sometime" something wrong in the boot area, while some other time it tell me about some mistakes in TMP files" i normally deletes the TMP instead than correcting the mistake. The Curios thing??? WELL, after the scan, because the previous irregular shut down, My computer will always work...sometime i take it on for days and it keep working....The problem??? well i don't think it's a good idea to keep the Computer on for ever...also because the cache get full, 2nd "Most important" I think that if I keep shutting down My Pc from the main Switch My Pc soon or later will be totally ruined.....Any suggestion???
To solve the problem I deleted the folder with The TMP files, I also deleted Cookies But it didn't work.
When I start my Pc it doesn't use all the fact i went on Ms config to uncheck all the stupid files that i really don't need to be loaded when I start the Computer...In this way my Computer is Faster, in fact before it tended to slow down.....Sometime I notice some graphic problem....Well I just gave a description of my problems with the solutions i tried to apply, but nothing worked....So if Anybody knows how to help me I really 'd appreciate it.
Thanx Since now......Bye

I don't know what the Cancel key is, but when the machine freezes, have you tried getting into Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and looking at the processes running? At that point, you should be able to determine what's causing the problem.

My apologies. I didn't see that we were in the ME Forum. When you do Ctrl-Alt-Del do you see any processes that are not responding?

Have you run a scandisk and defrag to see if that improves performance?

What about starting in Safe Mode with Networking?
