Microsoft releases a new update (2727113), now available on Windows Update for Windows 8 Release Preview users. The new update resolves the freezing issue on Windows 8. The KB article describes the symptoms and cause as such:
"On a computer that is running Windows 8 Release Preview or Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate, the system may randomly stop responding (hang) when you work on multimedia or communication activities. This problem may occur during video editing, unified communications, or other multimedia activities.
This problem may occur because of an issue in the interaction between the state-machine driving dynamic tick transitions and the state-machine-driving clock rate changes."

Thanks for the news. It reminds me to boot into my Windows 8 partition. There must be a lot of new stuff in the Store now.
