I have had this issue with two HP laptops now but other within the office are using the same laptops without fault. Also I have had this laptop for a few months now without fault.
I dont have auto updates turned on so it shouldn't be something intorduced by an update.
Concerning the updates being turned off, does that include Windows updates?
You might do a check/repair of protected system files by following this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Please be sure to to remember to answer Britton30's question about how you're connecting to the network (from home or at the office). It would also be helpful to know if you're connected via a domain.
Is it your own computer or one provided to you by your company?
