[Problem!] Freezing graphics

I have a problem with freezing graphics in-game. In most cases when I start the game the graphics (UI and 3D environment) freezes completely for about 30-60 seconds at a time - after each freeze the graphics comes back to life and runs for a couple of minutes and then everything freezes up again. Only the mouse pointer is still moving while everything else including the 3D environment, 2D UI elements/controls are completely frozen. The sound layer seems to stay in some kind of loop during these freeze ups. Once the freeze period expires everything returns to normal. Yes I do have visual elements on screen during the freezes except it's like a screenshot I can move the mouse over.

Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you solve it?

I've updated to the lastest drivers for everything and I'm running Win7 Ultimate 64-bit.
