Occasionally, while working on some programme, the computer suddenly freezes and clicking on the mouse fails to elicit any response. I then have to utilize reset button since even keyboard is ineffective. How do I tacle this problem effectively?

Is it always the same program?.. If so which program is it?.. How old is your computer?

James,
This could be a lot of things.  Can you provide more information on your system.

I would start with the following

scandisk
defrag

go to start|run|sfc and scan for altered files.

Also,
this may be heat related.  See if the fan is running, if so, remove the case and see if that helps.

Other than that, more information is needed.
