A few questions, the answers to which might be of some help:
Am using SAS EG 7.1. Yes I have run it before, this 'freezing' happens occassionally. I have tried to run a join on SASHELP library however when i clicked the query builder button, it freezes again. The table im trying to join only has 428 rows. CARS. I have no other issues with running queries on my other laptop. I have checked system compatibilities, both running on 64 bit and installed memory ram available is 19.9gb.
The fact that you have no issues on another laptop with the same setup indicates either an installation or (less likely) hardware issue.
I would try uninstalling and reinstalling SAS EG to see if that helps.
If that's not an option or you still have issues after reinstalling then I would advise that you raise a track with SAS Technical Support:
I did a web search and found the following similar sounding issue with some SAS Technical Support feedback supplied by @Yarlanil59:
