Windows 7 Constantly Freezes

I have a laptop with Windows 7 on it (64 bit) that CONSTANTLY freeze. It's been doing this since I got the computer.

For example, I'll be right in the middle of a word document, I'll save it, the entire computer freezes for about 30-60 seconds. I'll be on a web page and the entire computer freezes. Or a spreadsheet, or...

Bascially no matter what I'm doing, my computer freezes constantly; freezing several times in a hour. It freezes when I close stuff. It is extremely annoying.

It did it twice while typing this message. Once during a windows update, and another time when I tried to reboot the computer. I opened "Start", "Shut Down" the menu popped up and it froze before I could click "Restart".

What is the fix?

Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel(R) Core 2 Duo CPU T6600 @ 2.20GHz
4.00 RAM
64-Bit OS
