Hmm...I might be able to help out a bit. Can you give me a complete, step-by-step to recreate the problem? When/where does it freeze? Always?

Looks like a pretty decent system, so I doubt that's going to be the issue. But, we'll have to see. My guess is software setting somewhere.

What other programs are running in the background?
What scheduled task have you got.
Are there anti virus programs running in the background.
Look in your error logs;

Left Click on Start Menu.
Right click on Computer and choose manage.
Click on the event viewer.
You now have loads of options to try and pin down what is happening.
Expand the error tab.
Look for things in the last 24 hours.

Put your system specs in your sig as it will save you having to type it out every time.

Have you tried to run it in compatability mode?
It sounds like the main game file may be causeing the problem, however as fightingscallion said it may be a punkbuster issue.

Maybe running the game in Administrator Mode might help. Sometimes Punkbuster gets cranky if it doesn't get admin access.
