Carlo Costanzo from VMwareInfo.com has posted the following helpful article:

The SVGA II driver installed by VMware Tools doesn’t work with 2008 R2 or Windows 7.  Console sessions will randomly lockup.


According to the thread there is a WDDM driver in U1 that you can install manually to fix the problem by browsing to –

C:\Program Files\Common Files\VMware\Drivers\wddm_video

A good one 🙂
