NVDA freezes when a user selects Change or Remove for some programs in the Add or Remove Programs control panel applet in Windows XP.
NVDA freezes. Apparently, in earlier versions (not sure how long ago), NVDA did freeze, but alt+tabbing seemed to bring it back to life. This is no longer the case.

We still don't have a solution to this problem. However, after the merge of the eventRestructure branch, things seem to have improved slightly. There is now at least a work around for the freeze in Windows XP Add or Remove Programs. When a button is activated and NVDA freezes, press alt+tab four times. Note that alt should be released after each press.

This is definitely a critical issue, but we don't know of a fix and we probably won't find one before 0.6. There is a work around as described above.
Milestone changed from 0.6 to None
