Please respond to the list so everyone can see the response (like the developers would would actually fix bugs).
What do you do after PSPP says "(Not responding)"?
When a Windows program says that, it means that it's doing something internally and it may respond when it's finished. Although it can indicate a problem, PSPP also does this when operating normally when it was performing a lot of calculations. In the latter case, the output appears after a few minutes. Because you are analyzing a big dataset, it seems possible that PSPP is just slower than you expect (and not actually broken).
The attached dataset comes with PSPP so you could open it either from Start > All Programs > PSPP > Examples, or from my email. It has 17 rows (i.e., it's quite small). Please run your analysis on this dataset; does PSPP say "Not Responding" when analyzing this dataset? If so, I'd say PSPP is broken. But if not, I'd say it's just slow to respond.
