Remove the card and install in a different pci slot,it may be a problem with the way windows is giving the pci slot the startup request. Just also double check that the correct driver is being recognised and not a windows generic driver. Look in device manager on hardware tab and see if there is a 'x' or an exclamation mark (!) against the wireless card.

Hanging is just a minor problem of any pc. It just means that the system is hot. Just open up the system unit and make sure that the cpu, system and power pack fans are working. Also clean the system because of dust.
