computer freezing...plz help

OK so I have a comp. presario and have had it about 4 years now. It has started to freeze now and it does it all the time. When I say freeze, I mean for a 20-30 second span and then you can continue to work. when the freeze occurs, EVERYHTHING stops working...mouse, im...everything. I ran norton and showed no viruses. I also ran adware and spybot and cleared out some crap and it continues to happen. I just tried to do a system restore and it froze during that. Any clues why this may be happening?

thanks

Probably there's some junk/malware still remaining in your system. I think it is a good idea to re-install your Windows.

I second that. I had an older computer that would give me a lot of headaches. I always found reformatting it helped for a while.
