Welcome Back, Roger.

If anything at all was recorded to show what was hanging, it would be in the 
Event Viewer (Start > Run > eventvwr.msc).  There are three sections and 
only two of them record items by default.  Most likely, it would be entered 
somewhere in the System area, but check through the Application area as 
well, just to be sure.
