I am running Photoshop CC 2014 under Windows 8.1 on a Dell 2710 desktop. About one time in 10 when I hit File/Save As the window opens and locks. Not only that when I do Cntrl-Alt-Del and open Task Manager to close Photoshop, Task Manager locks!!! The only program I've ever seen that can do this! What's up???

An application cannot lock the entire system.
Only OS bugs, hardware defects and low level driver bugs can do that.

Also, the save dialog is provided by the OS and driven mostly by the OS.

So it sounds like you have an OS level problem, possibly with a driver or some device (like an external drive, or maybe a network server).
