FSX freezez up after paused
First, I would like to say that I have searched in forums and on google for the solution, but the expanse range of FSX freezing up would take weeks to go over all of them.
My FSX will freeze up about 1 minute after coming off of an extended pause. For example, today I was doing a flight from KATL to KJAC and started feeling tired. I paused the flight, took an hour nap, and when I unpaused it, almost right away ATC sent me to another center. FSX worked properly until after I closed the ATC window after the center change.
The sound still runs, but there is no mouse pointer, and if I were to do ctrl+alt+del and start task manager, it shows FSX as 'not responding' If then I go back to FSX, there is just a black screen with sound still going.
I already have done the /3GB switch (set to 3072) and did the UIAutomationCore.dll switch to the Vista version and placed in the FSX main folder.
Below are my system specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
nVidia GeForce 9500GT 1GB graphics card with latest driver update on 8-3-11
Processor: Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5300 @ 2.60GHz 2.60GHz
Installed memory RAM: 3.00GB
FSX SP2 installed
I did not have the problem a month ago, and the only recent addon was the I bought Ultimate Terrain X for USA and Europe. I appreciate any help that can be provided.
Additional info: I notice that FSX uses an average of 2GB of memory and I have only 1 excel book open which I use as a flight and fuel tracker. I believe this is a memory leak issue, but am not sure since this was not an issue a month ago when I could pause a flight, go to work, come home and still fly just fine.

Reason: additional info
There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?
