When copying files over the network, or from a USB drive, My daughters system keeps locking. I think it maybe the hard drive that's at fault. Can anyone shed any light on this.

To run the system file checker press Start, Run, and then type in SFC, followed by its options.
"Enter the SFC, the System File Checker."

The most common usage of SFC is this:

SFC /scannow

This causes SFC to scan your system immediately. SFC can take a few minutes to run. Have your installation CD or equivalent available in case SFC needs to replace a damaged file.

If the machine still freezes after running SFC, take note of the exact time that your computer freezes by looking at the system clock on the lower right task bar. Then check the all the log files for events around that time of the freeze for any hints. You can access the Log files by Clicking on Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Then select each section on the left panel and search for any errors that occured at the time the machine froze. Double click any error to display further details.

It might be as simple as maintenance (disk cleanup, defrag...)

Just a quick update, I've managed to sort it. Just adjusted the FSB in the BIOS, no problems so far!

Ahhh... an "overclocker"!
Make sure to write down what works and what doesn't so if you ever reset the BIOS or do a flash you can go back to a previously stable configuration.
