I don't believe that at all. So any fix or no?
Believe it because it's true.
There is no fix because there is nothing wrong with Windows. If you truly have a problem, then it is from something(s) you installed that should not have been. And at 85% of 6 GB, I'd say there is.
One thing that comes to mind immediately is AVG. There are plenty other "things."
If you want me to take a look, type system information in the start menu search box. Hit enter. Ctrl+s. Rar or zip the saved file and attach to a post using the paperclip.
Use the task manager if you need to end the game installer processes after it installs. It could be hanging.
