8.04 randomly locks up.

This my fifth attempt to send this message. The first four times were
tried when I was running UBUNTU 8.04, twice with CD version and twice
with the DVD version, but freezeup occurred and the messages couldn't be
sent. I finally had to resort to Windows XP to send this message.
I have both, the CD and DVD, versions of 8.04 ubuntu installed and I'm
having a freezeup problem with both. The two were downloaded from
different sources. The earlier versions (6.04 - 7.10) didn't have any
such problems and neither does it occur in Windows.
The freezeup seems to be completely random but seems to occur when I
move the cursor
to select some operation. It doesn't happen every time I move the
cursor, it is completely random.
When freezeup occurs, mouse operation and none of the keyboard keys have
any visible effect except pressing the power button on the computer to
shut it off and start over.
I'm quite sure I have the proper (for my computer) versions of ubuntu
All of the earlier ubuntus never gave me any problem.
Could this be some flaw in 8.04?
