Windows 7: WerFault.exe and Windows 7 upgrade

WerFault.exe and Windows 7 upgrade

So I upgrade to Windows 7, Home Premium 64 bit from Vista 64

It all went well until I tried to open a 32 bit programme. IE 64 opens okay, but thatís it. If I open any 32 bit programme (and some of the management programmes) I get werfault.exe*32 in the processes in the task manager. This spirals out of control, it had got up to 7,000 open processes on one occasion.

I have opened in safe mode and everything starts fine.

I have disabled all services at startup in Msconfig, and all the programmes will open.

Any ideas?

Thanx in advance

Did you do an in-place upgrade, or did you do a clean install?

Start enabling the services one by one until you find the one that is causing the problem.. if it is a third party application, consider uninstalling it ... if it is a MS program that you dont need, leave it disabled... Hope this helps...
