Sorry rbanavara - I´ve re-read my post and I´m not clear enough.
When I talk about windows resizing I actually mean changing the physical size of graphical windows on the screen (e.g. resizing my firefox, for example, somewhere between minimum and maximum sizes on the screen).
That´s what causes the freeze - fortunately I´ve never had any problems resizing the MS Windows partition, which I think you´re referring to.

MagnusB - thanks, I´m pretty sure it is the kernel with respect to the wireless. I have no idea which wireless driver I am using! Whichever one came with the previous kernel, and changed with the new one I guess!!
How do I make sure my driver is fully up to date and works with the new kernel I guess is the question.
Graphics card is bog-standard Intel 950 - I always thought the Intel cards were very well supported under Linux.
I know this is blasphemy, however after a full de-crapify of my Vista install, it´s actually working pretty well!
So at the moment I´m Vista on my desktop, and Mint 4.0 on my laptop, and it´s a situation that´s working fine for me (added to the fact that I use a lot of Adobe design products, for which - gimp aside - there are no equivalent Linux apps with the power and usefulness of the CS3 suite. InDesign, Illustrator, Acrobat Pro, DreamWeaver etc. It´s full commercial software, and clearly cost a lot to write, so I would have no objection *gasp* paying for it if it was a full port - running under VM or wine just makes no sense if it´s a native app - and memory intensive at that - dual boot seems to be the best option. anyhoo, I digress)
I think I´ll leave Linux on the desktop alone for now, and revisit in a few months.
Thanks for the time to reply to the post guys.
