Could be a number of things...

Dust inside the PC
Programmes running in the background
Corrupt files/drivers

Go into safe mode first and see if it still freezes, press F8 on restart to get into it and mess around in there for a while.

If that is ok, then you might have to do a bit of cleaning.

Removing SPYWARE, Anti-Virus scans, Defrags and name a few.

Basically you need to close as much down as possible, then keep adding till it freezes, then you'll have a better idea of what is causing it.

What OS are you using?
