Hi, I'm pirate1 and I have been mining for about 3 months.  I just ran into a problem.  I recently moved just over 4 bitcoins to my wallet from my pool.  My wallet froze up and wouldn't download the new blocks.  I ended up deleting the blkindex.dat and blk001.dat files and starting over.  It went up to 160,808 and stopped.  I then upgraded my wallet to the newest version.  It shows all 9 of my old transactions but is still froze at 160,808 blocks. It shows it is catching up but nothing changes.  The little pinwheel on the bottom is turning.  I tried downloading the latest block file and placing it in the folder where I had deleted the two files but it would not work with it there and I had to delete it.  I did save a copy of my wallet.dat file but have not had to use it for anything.  The message at the bottom of the wallet says I may need to upgrade or other nodes may need to upgrade.  I did just upgrade my wallet to the latest version.  What else do I need to do?  Can anyone help with this?

As long as I wake up breathing it's all a bonus.  Sometimes not much of a bonus but still a bonus.

Well I have downloaded the newest versions of the wallet, the bitcoin app, and the gui miner.  I mine fine and once I changed the path from bitcoin.exe to bitcoin-qt.exe it calls up my wallet ok.  The problem still remains it is stuck at 160,808 and has not moved in hours.  My old transactions are all showing but my newest one from this morning does not.  Of course I don't expect it to until all the blocks are downloaded.  Isn't there some way to fix this?  I know I can download the latest blockchain but I really don't know what to do with it.  Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Problem solved.  Since I had upgraded everything I went ahead and deleted those two files again and started downloading the blocks again.  This time it went all the way through and my latest transfer showed up.  Interesting and time consuming experience.
Thanks anyway.
