    Is your main language English? I remember Panther having some issues with Eastern European languages and the menu bar (which is SystemUIServer AFAIK). Also, do you have an iPod plugged in at the time?

    IIRC that is your menu bar. I remember it hanging when after ipods are ejected in some osx versions.

    what os are you running?

    That's correct. I've seen iSync, iPods and BlueTooth cause these issues, mainly in Panther.

    My main language is Dutch, and i'm running 10.3.9

    edit: i plug in my iPod once in a while, to sync my adress book and iCal, i plug it in my pc to connect with iTunes.

    Okay, what's in the top right hand corner with the clock? Do you have some menus there? :)

    Well, I'm suspecting it's the AirPort menu but before we remove com.apple.airport.menuextra.plist, maybe open a file named SystemUIServer.crash.log and tell us what you see. :)

    okay, i'm awake again :)

    i'm afraid i don't have a file named SystemUIServer.crash.log
    neither do i have com.apple.airport.menuextra.plist

    when i search for "menuextra" i get the following results:
    com.apple.menuextra.battery.plist
    com.apple.modemmenuextra.plist
    com.apple.vpnmenuextra.plist
