Howdy Neighbor ? (Southlake)
I guess the 1st thing is to re-install the latest drivers for sound and video.
But, when did this start, has ANYTHING changed on the computer about the time or just before this happened ?
What happens when watching a video not in flash ?
What software is running in the background ?
Have you checked to see what programs are loading @ startup and are there incompatibilities ?
Also, what are your system specs ? So when I run out of ideas I can blame it on some crappy hardware

I had this problem after upgrading to Windows 7 SP1. I am running the 64 bit version.
RAM tested fine, HDD tested fine...
I was running a Thinkpad W510. As the problem started, it would recover frequently from the frozen state. As time went on, it would recover less, and then I would be forced to do a hard reboot.
I have since downgraded from SP1 to SP0 (build 7600) and it has been fine.

I'll try uninstalling the service pack tomorrow and report back on what happens. Thanks!

OK, it has been a week since I uninstalled SP1 and I'd like to report that I haven't encountered a single system freeze since. This is certainly a satisfactory workaround.
Thank you auto-logic and TEX4S for your help in troubleshooting this problem. Cheers!
