software to monitor what is causing computer to freeze

LeonGarfield asked
Last Modified: 2016-11-22
I have a Dell Windows 7 computer and it totally freezes about once a week. It doesn't crash, it freezes, so there is no minidump file.
I have run all built in diagnostics and it didn't find any hardware problems.
I have the latest drivers installed
I am guessing the problem is from some software. Is there any software I can install to monitor what is causing the computer to freeze.
