Try using the latest Backtrack 5 R3.
...i have bt5 r 2 installed on my pc along side ms win7. My backtrack just keeps freezing any time i launch gerix or any other application that comes with it. It puts the whole system on halt n at dat point i will need a hard restart to get it running smoothly again.
No, I have the same problem with that and i have BT5r3. My problem is that whenever i randomly minimize or maximize things in the panel it will just freeze up to where i have to do a hard reset. I have BT5 installed on my laptop and BT5r3 installed on my desktop and it does the same thing for both of the computers.
