Windows 7: Constant Freezing and slow boot up

UPDATE -

I got rid of this problem. Did a virus scan and all seemed ok. I have had my firewall on, and downloaded nothing and the problem is back. What i see weird is that once the computer freezes, the CPU is showing around 2-10%... surely if it was freezing it would be more like 100%? The RAM also shows around a constant 48-65%

Im starting to beleive my processor is on its way out? Surely it shouldnt even be going below 10% with just running w7, on a single core.

thanks in advance

Ive also noticed that one i restart, i have to re-login to websites i would have previously logged in, EG Facebook, i have to sign in again.

I also reboothed and it said something along the lines of "Read Disk Error" or something, "Press Cntrl+Alt+Del to Reboot".

James, when my computer was freezing due to graphics card, it would freeze at whatever the CPU was doing at the time. It might have 8% or 60% and everything in between. It was never at 100%. And my RAM usage was in the same range as you describe. All this is simply to say, it may not be your processor.
