Vista just started to freeze up / hang

Vista was working fine for some-time (except for a few bugs). Then it
started to freeze up. I changed nothing I was aware of. Maybe a Windows
Update changed something.

Symptoms are: it boots fine, it's loading stuff after boot, it works fine
for about 2 minutes then just freezes. There's a little activity going on
(clock changes every 10 minutes or so, mouse will move after same time
period). I can get the task manager loaded but it's not giving me a clue to
the hang cause. I suspect Desktop Search but it's only a theory.

Any diagnostics I can run to find the cause?
