System Freeze

About every 20 minutes my system freezes. The display locks up the mouse will not work and the keyboard does not respond. After a while 1-2 minutes the screen goes black then the system comes back to life. Strangely enough it then executes any key presses or mouse actions.
I am running XP pro on a self built system.
Any help will be appreciated

How about the system restore utility? Is it running too frequently?

Adaware & Spybot did not reveal anything and virus check shows the system is clean.

How do I check for the system restore utility?
