Desktop Freezes Up

If I drawing a square around a group of desktop icons and then click outside the square to de-emphasize, the desktop will many times freezes up. Start menu and everything else works fine. A simple restart will reset the desktop.

I run Win 7 x64 Home Premium with an Asus PQ5-EM and Intel E8400 and with 8gb OCZ DDR2 PC6400 Reaper.

Hello, welcome to the Forums!
This would not be the first course of action for most of the users here, but since it has been 8 hours since your post, and nobody else has answered, can I recommend a Repair Install?
Just a thought. No guarantee it will work, but it certainly won't hurt anything.
