SW locks up several times a day - Often when I have been away from the desk for a while and come back and just click on SW - usually on larger assembly / but not necessarily super large - it appears to be graphic card related - what ever floats over SW stays there - I can only stop SW by cntrl alt del - eventually I have to do a complete shutdown - I suspect there is a memory hole in either the ram or the video ram.

I think it started around March on a Friday morning. You might wonder why I say that particular time. That morning it took 50 minutes to login to our corporate network. At the end of the login the OS was unpacking and loading files - IT guys say they were not updating their login script - IT guys say it was probably a automatic Windows update. By the way - In research for SW lockup I have seen references about Office 2007 - Microsoft Office 2007 sucks eggs in a major way.
