Windows 7 locks up when installing any program

Windows 7 locks up when installing any program. I cannot put it simpler than that, I happens every time. Am on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 sp1 (7061)

I don't know why. Any Ideas?

Hello mate.


Perhaps Method One will help.

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Perhaps you have too many 'things' running, have you checked the msconfig startup file?

Win7 troubleshooting fundamentals

If logs and other resources don't reveal the problem, SFC is clean or finds unfixable System files, then consider the Repair Install as a last resort before Clean Reinstall.
