My iMac keeps locking up, but the cursor remains moveable.  No pattern that I can see, it sometimes occurs soon after starting up, other times apparently random.  Mail is set to load on start-up.  The freeze often occurs with this, but can be any other app, e.g skype.  Any suggestions anyone please?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

command-option-esc keys will quit the offending program. Reboot whil holding down the command-r keys into the Recovery Dsik. select Disk Utility and then select your hard drive from the left side column and then select Repair Disk.

Many thanks, it seems to have done the trick.  There were many permissions to repair.
