Hi kthorei,

I would like to suggest you reboot your computer in a Clean Boot state, below are the instructions. It's possible a program or driver is causing this issue. To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

How-to run Windows in Selective Startup (Clean Boot)…
1.Click Start, click Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click System Configuration.
2.Click Continue, or provide Administrator credentials if prompted.
3.Click the General tab, and click Selective startup.
4.Under Selective startup uncheck Load startup items.
5.Click the Services tab, check the Hide all Microsoft services box, and then click Disable all.
6.Click the Apply, then OK, and then Restart.
