Acer desktop randomly freezing

I'm beginning to notice my desktop is randomly freezing. It always happens while I am browsing the internet using Google Chrome / Firefox (sometimes watching live streaming videos). I notice when I turn my computer back on the temperature of the GPU is around 60C.



Is Windows 7 . . .
- x86 (32-bit) or x64 ? x64.
- the original installed OS on the system? Yes.
- an OEM or full retail version? OEM

- What is the age of system (hardware)? Purchased late December 2009.
- What is the age of OS installation (have you re-installed the OS?) Purchased late December 2009, system restore done early September 2010.

Try a clean boot

It's not a constant problem, it just happens every now and then.
