The whole machine crashes, or Photoshop crashes?
Are you seeing a bluescreen?

windows freezes up. my mouse quits. I can close the computer or reboot.
My only solution is a hard reboot.
photoshop closes without anyproblems as far as I can tell.

OK, so you're looking at a hardware problem, an OS bug, or a low level driver bug. It could be something like the video card driver, the hard drive, or bad RAM.

no blue screen, just the desk top
