I forced the power cycle when windows stopped responding, think of what happens if you were to disconnect the system drive, thats what happened.
Whilst a windows search on its first run is reasonable load, under normal circumstances it wont take a flash drive to 100%, especially as by default it uses background i/o priority (slows itself down significantly so its not felt).
Just to further clarify, I did wait a while when it hung, and even the task manager stopped updating its graphs, everything was frozen and eventually the mouse pointer froze also.
