Occasionally while I'm using Firefox to browse the world wide web my taskbar will just freeze for no apparent reason. I will close the windows I have open and shutoff my computer as that seems to be the only way to fix the problem(temporarily at least). I dont get any error messages or anything so I have no idea why its doing what its doing. Any help would be much appreciated.

what I would do is:
- when taskbar freeze just press CTRL+ALT+DEL and open task manager. Inspect processes and see what process "eat" ure CPU. Eventually kill it (after analyse LOL). Look into Event viewer for any logs.

- if u don't want 2 reboot ure system just press again CTRL+ALT+DEL and open task manager. On process list find "explorer.exe" and kill it. Here u'll have 2 options. Either ure system will reboot automaticaly shell (explorer) or u have 2 do it by hand: in task manager File->New Task-> explorer.exe

Your computer may be overheating or you may be using up all your system resources. Close some running processes in the taskmanager and see if that helps. :tazz:
