Inactive screen

During the execution of some big operations (like database init.) the screen is inactive and in the bar shows "Not Responding". I should use a progressbar to show that the app it's working but the screen is inactive.
How can I have access to form? How can be this problem solved?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try using DoEvents() several times during the big operation. Does this solve the problem?
