    The other day my desktop started locking-up after about fifteen seconds. If I open a window for a game or the internet I can use that but my desktop is completely unaccessable. I have to log out through the task manager menu. Any ideas???

    Do you have any gadgets running?
    Have you updated any hardware or software around the time the problem surfaced?
    Have you tried a system restore to a time when all was working ok?

    I'd try a System Restore. Go to Control Panel | System and Maintenance | System | System Protection.
