Hi all, having a really strange issue that is affecting multiple computers all with windows 7 64 bit.
Home computer: Only seems to happen when installing or deleting .exe files... usually when I try and delete them. It is fine doing everything else.. gaming/etc.
I5 750 CPU
8 GB DDR3 RAM
Nvidia 560 TI
Work computers (at least 6 different ones, all with different users): If it were only these computers having the issue, I would say lack of RAM... since we run a lot of apps, but since it is happening on my home computer....
Intel 2 Duo E7500
4 GB RAM
Nvidia Quadro NVS 450
At work I caught the RAM dropping down to 0 free, where it will normally have around 1 gig - 500 mb free. I haven't been able to catch the ram usage at home when the issue happens... since you can't even CTRL ALT DELETE, I forget the exact message, but it pretty much tells you to just restart your computer manually. Also the internet connection will drop, and firefox will say a script stopped responding.
This seems to have started happening in the last month or two, which leads me to think there was an update that affects how windows 7 is allocating RAM, where it is trying to use too much for the system and draining it.
Since this seems to be affecting so many computers I really expected to see a lot of people having the issue online, but I haven't been able to find anything.
Hopefully some of you have ideas, if you need any more info let me know. Thanks!
