Taskbar becomes inactive for a while

Hi

I have 2 customers with the following:
- one has a SBS 2003 server where the console hangs in such a way that the taskbar down below does not respond to clicks.  You have to start task manager and that frees up the taskbar relatively quickly most of the time
- one has this issue on a windows 7 pro computer

Where is this coming from and how do I solve it?
Thanks in advance.

I would check the Performance settings in Task manager and see if all the available memory is used up or if the CPU usage is cranked. Usually hangups like that can be resolved by freeing up memory or CPU resources.
