This is the first problem I've had with Illustrator. Man this really annoys me, I don't know what else to do.

Either way, both of those solutions I haven't had to use for years.. but it's worth a shot if nothing else works.

What version of Illustrator is it? CS2? When was it originally installed, and how long was the license good for? If you are really dedicated, you could uninstall, and then run a registry cleaner and search for leftover Illustrator keys in Windows Registry which may be causing the freezing. Also, did you just install any recent Windows Updates? Try uninstalling a few of the most recent.
It's CS2, I installed it less than a week ago. I've had CS2 for less than a year, so if there is a limit to the license, I'd assume its still good. It's still working good on my other machine though (the slower one with a only one 18" monitor).
I'm in the middle of cleaning out the registry, if that doesn't work, I'lll try installing in safe mode, then, I'll try installing CS and hopefully that'll work and at least give me functionality on this comp.
Thanks for the help.

To re-create the Illustrator preferences file:
1. Quit Illustrator.
2. Rename the AIPrefs file (for example, to AIPrefs.old) located in Documents and Settings\ [user profile] \Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator [version] Settings.
3. Start Illustrator. Illustrator creates a new preferences file.
If the problem continues, the preferences file isn't the cause. To restore custom settings, delete the new preferences file and restore the original name of the previous preferences file.

I faced a similar problem. After a number of hit and trials, I save documents with the Illustrator window covering half the screen, not maximized. And it works and I really don't know why. Just try this.
Now that I think about it, Illustrator was acting funny when I would maximize the screen, and document would sometimes disapear, and only reapper when I would change the view (forget what it's called) by hitting the f key. Maybe it has something to due with the display driver or something...
Thanks for the idea, I'll try that tomorrow morning. As of now, I installed Illustrator CS and that works fine...
