If you select yes, then the system will convert your FAT32 file system to NTFS the next time you restart your computer. You shouldn't loose your data, since that utility is made especially for that purpose, to convert FAT32 to NTFS without data loss, like the Q&A in the link I gave you above.

Now, it is always a good idea to backup your important information before messing with the system, just in case it hiccups and your data dies. If you can do a backup, then do one.

Also, how many fans do you have in your case? Too much heat can cause your computer to behave in an inconsistent manner. (I was trying to word that last sentence for about 2 min. It just wouldn't come to me )

Overheaing won't cause it to freeze, it will only make it shutdown or randomly restart.

Converting to NTFS is a good idea because it's a much more stable system, and XP is really designed and better suited for it.

It may very well be related to why your computer was freezing.

Is it just Internet Explorer that is doing this, and do you have a Windows CD?

If so, go to Start, run and type in sfc /scannow then OK. (Note there is a space after sfc )

You will need a Windows CD for this.
