12" PowerBook G4 is freezing erratically.  Got message which ended in: We are hanging here.  It's getting worse.  What should I do?

My computer is freezing more and more often.  Problem's been going on for about a week.  I'm now getting lots of visual crap, too.  Including a long error message which ended in

"Panic:  We are hanging here".  Not sure if the punctuation is right. 


Any recommendations?  Saw one regarding a NVRAM reset which didn't seem to help the other computer. 


Is this the result of a virus?  If so, how does one clean the computer.  I don't really want to buy a new one.

PowerBook G4, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
