Desktop Freezes

Sometimes when something is not responding like a network for example, you have no choice but to press ctrl,alt,del and end the task. When i do this every icon and window disappears and you are left with a blank desktop frozen. But you can still move your mouse. Right clicking does not work and i have to turn my computer XP Home edition off manually pressing the power button. How can i stop this from happening and does it damage your computer when shutting your pc off via the power button like the older machines?
