It's difficult for people to answer your question because you do not give enough information. For example how much memory is in your system and how much is in use.

What is the output of the command free -m (if its possible to do that if your machine freezes up)

If you suspect the problem is memory shortage then the solution is easy: get more ram.

The reason it works with Windows is probably swap. Did you configure (and enable) a swap partition for Ubuntu to use?

Note that using swap slows things down, so the suggestion to get more RAM is still very much valid, but if that's not in the cards adding some swap might get you going, just not as quickly.
