Check the Performance log to see if it recorded what caused the hang. Rightclick Computer>Properties, click WEI score link, choose Advanced Tools. Look for cued issues on Tools page, Generate A System Health report.

To help us catch up with where you are, can you summarize succinctly what you have done and what you plan to do.

Best way to transfer files between computers is send them over Network, or drag and drop to external, stick or DVD.
