Windows 7: Programs sometimes don't open?

Programs sometimes don't open?

I have a rather odd recurring problem with Windows 7 (I have the 64-bit version of Home Premium). Sometimes when I click a program icon down on the taskbar the icon will highlight for a moment and then go back to normal. The program will either not open at all or it will open about several minutes later.

I have ZoneAlarm Pro, but all of my programs have been allowed by ZoneAlarm, so I know it isn't that. I was just wondering if anyone else was having this weird issue and if so has anyone figured out what causes it?

Thanks.

The cold boot thing is irrelevant. This problem has been going on from when I first installed Windows and so there have been many "cold boots" since then. I've even reformatted a couple times and it still persists. So that's why I came here, to see if anyone else is having this problem.
