Taskbar Freezing / Unclickable

Hi All

I have Win 7 7600 installed and every now and then the taksbar becomes unclickable. I have to ctrl+alt+del and the cancel it and then I can go on.

any ideas on what can be causing this.

I have updated the realtek drivers, nvidia drivers (got 6200 installed lol), updated bios.

As for program I have Firefox 3.5, Winrar, PowerISO installed. It is networked to my main pc running Vista X64 Ultimate.
