    Just saying it froze won't help much. Did you check the event logs for any errors? Did you change anything on pc recently, software maybe?
    Antivirus, firewall and antispyware memory drivers can cause freeze, so can other drivers like video audio, network etc. Does it freeze up completely mouse and all, if that's the case check drivers especially video. Otherwise check for hard drive failing that will freeze a pc.

    Why not just try another torrent client see if you still have problem.

    I use uTorrent in combination with Avira, no probs at all.

    Could you check event viewer what it says about the freeze ?
    Cause it may well be something else then BitComet or Avast causing this...
