I've had experences where a given file/folder that is either damaged or situation on bad clusters...caused the system to freeze but nothing like what you describe.

Are you using Explorer view to access the folder...is it in My Documenets...what is the path?

I would try running the chkdsk /r commend, just on GP.

No other folders present problems?

Why did you mention your screensaver?
