If your machine is freezing (not just Calibre) then you have something seriously wrong either at the hardware or system software level. That needs to be resolved before you try and sort out Calibre.

I would suggest doing things like:
- doing a memory (RAM) test using something like memtest86+
- doing a hard disk check including checking for bad sectors.

Cooling failures is another big cause.
Lint clogged fins and grilles.
Slow or stopped fan blades (common locations: PSU, CPU, Case, Chipset and Video card.
If your computer sits on the floor, these need to be checked as often as every 6 months for good cooling performance. Heat is the Enemy

Before you do *anything* else, make a backup of your Calibre Library directory, including metadata.db, to an usb stick or something. This backup can likely be opened as a library in, or in worst case imported to, a working Calibre installation on another computer. You probably don't want to lose your library if your hard drive goes belly-up

It's a very good idea to do this regularly in any case.
