When i Click Fake Website My Computer Freezes

My Computer Freezes

Also a common problem, but it is far more serious than a slow PC. In most cases it is caused by viruses, especially spyware that has been installed on your computer.
It can enter via a click on a link to a fake website from an email or so on. Often the email is being sent from what looks like your bank, Paypal, Facebook or similar.
Last year MY Security Center registered an increase in malware infections coming from Facebook-related fraudsters among their customers.
The problem can also be caused by hardware – perhaps some memory you just installed – or recent software updates, including Windows Update.

Check the link you are clicking by holding the cursor over it to see the link’s full address. Does it look suspicious? 
Never give out your passwords or credit card information to anyone, even if it seems like your bank requires you to verify your account. It’s a clever phishing trick that hackers use to gain access to your money.
Make sure your antivirus and anti-spyware software is updated. Most antivirus programs can be set to automatically to check for new updates. If you are sure that your computer is spyware free, the problem may be due to outdated hardware drivers. Check your hardware drivers for updated versions. Outdated drivers can cause your computer to stop responding and freeze.

If you suspect the problem is hardware related, you can try uninstalling any component you recently installed, or try removing or unplugging unnecessary hardware one piece at a time then booting your PC to see if the problem goes away. You can also try using Windows Restore to roll back to a previous restore point.
