Every now and then my system will hang up. Can't click on anything, and can only Cntrl Alt Del to get out of it. If I do that and log off and back on, then I can access programs again (full reboot not needed). Last time it happened I rec'd the following:

At the time of the freeze up there was also a Doctor Watson error that was equally vague. It did seem when I went into the Task Manager that there was still a Dr. Watson process running, although System was Idle 98%.
