Display hangs
I recently downloaded SP2 and now have a problem that after about 15-20 minutes the display hangs: pc is still running but I cannot change/close any windows. Task Manager shows the program is not running and the only way out is to shut down the pc from Task Manager. Can anybody help?

What program does Task Manager say is not running, or not responding?

Task Manager does not show any programs as running/not responding. I assume from this that they have shut down successfully but that the screen has frozen.

Are you saying that after the computer has been running for 15 - 20 minutes that it completely stops responding, no response to the keyboard, no mouse cursor movement etc, and the only way to switch off is by the power switch?

Mouse and keyboard still respond but screen is frozen - can't clear down or change any windows etc. Task Manager comes up ok, but shows no programs as running (I assume that they have in fact shut down) and I have been shutting down via the shut down label at the top of Task Manager as the only way out.. I thought I remembered seing this in the MS site as a known problem with SP2 but have not been able to find the answer again!
