I have a 2009 27" core i7 iMac and every once and a while it starts freezing randomly

like in photoshop it would freeze up (i could still use the mouse) then i found that i could click f3 (expose) and it would unfreeze but in 2 seconds it would freeze back up again

sometimes in safari it freezes up and i have to move the mouse the bottom then it unfreezes and freezes up again

other times it just randomly freezes

after a restart it doesn't happen as often but in a few hours it starts freezing again

it would be greatly appreciated if someone would help me with this problem when i bought a quad core mac i expected it would "never" freeze

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
