PC freezes once a day

I have a PC that it freezes once a day. Before freezing , I don't see any high usage in task manager. It is windows XP and computer is almost 5 years old.

Any idea ?

Does it freeze when performing a specific task? If you look in the event viewer do you see any error messages that indicate hardware/software failure?

Sounds like an update is taking place, something like an antivirus update that slows the PC and hangs. Same time each day?

You may have a hardware failure such as a CPU Fan not working and the computer is turning off on it's own.  Open the computer case if possible and check your fans.  Or, just get into the BIOS and watch the temp via the monitor.  I have seen this on at least 3 computers.  If the fan is not working, don't use the computer until you replace it.
