    I've been having some really annoying behaviour on my home machine
    running vista ultimate x64.

    My specs are: e8400, dfi p35 mobo, 4gb ram, 8800gtx, 4x 320gb in AHCI
    mode

    sometimes at random i'll get a system freeze for a few minutes when i
    use the file open/save dialogs, the dialogs appears empty no matter what
    folder i browse to and then explorer.exe freezes for a few minutes, all
    other applications continue to run perfectly, its almost as if explorer
    cant read a folder or something and locks up and then timesout before
    carry on.

    any idea what might be causing this?

    go to

    START>>SEARCH>>EVENTVWR.MSC
    check error messages in Application section - make sure especially on
    errors with explorer.exe...
