World of Warcraft not responding
Before Cata - no problems

Since Cata...................

At least once a day I get the following problem. Warcraft freezes, not sure how long but I have left it about for about a 1 min. In order to restart the game I have to tab out and start the task manager and kill wow (it says it is not responding in the task manager).

My system:
Studio XPS 16 : Intel Core i7 Processor 720QM(1.60GHz,6MB cache)
Memory : 4096MB (2x2048) 1333MHz DDR3 Dual Channel
Graphics : Integrated 1GB ATI Radeon HD 565v graphics
Operating System : English Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64 BIT)

So far I have tried:
Running wow in compatiblity mode (vista SP2 as I recall)
Running with selective startup

No difference.

I think my drivers are up2date but I am not 100% on that.

Any tips about what to try next would be appreicated as this problem is starting to get in the way of playing. I am main spec heals and me crashing during a dungeon doesnt go down well at all.
