Windows 7: Computer Freezes Often and shuts down!

Computer Freezes Often and shuts down!

You guys are experts, no questioning that.

That's why you have to help me out with this one.

I have a "brand new" Acer Aspire 7736G (bought it in December), that since a while ago used to work just fine...But since I started downloading movies (internet porn) and music (internet pr0nz) and installing games, and filled the memory with stuff the computer experienced several problems.

Sometime it just freezes, all the applications (such as shockwawe, or the plugins in the browser and the browser itself) and everything that was open just stops working, for a small amount of time (30 seconds circa). And this happens repeatedly: I open the computer, it freezes, runs correctly for like 20 minutes, freezes 30 seconds, runs freezes runs, and apparently it doesnt depend on the number of applications i have opened. Not even those in the Background... It just happens...

And worst of all, whenever I am using some big ass application such as a Game, the computer would shut down by itself...

I hate this, the pc is new! WHat do you people suggest I should do? Where do u see the problem?

The first and 99 responses would be to check for viruses (I wonder why, though I admire your honesty). I would consider downloading Malwarebytes and ESET scanners (free -- just Google) and running each separately as your first step.

downloading porn is your business. but if your downloading porn movies and music, odds are they're not legal downloads. giving you the benefit of the doubt, you have trashed your system with viruses and malware. Reinstall your operating system and, if you want a computer that works, steer clear of these sites.

As said, first run malwarebytes and see what happens.
what AV program do you have?
