Windows 7: Windows 7 desktop/Internet/everything Unresponsive

Windows 7 desktop/Internet/everything Unresponsive

Hey Guys

I've got this annoying problem with my 64-bit (7100) version. I'll be chilling, and all of a sudden, my desktop, internet and basically everything else will become unresponsive. When you dbl click on anything, it just doesn't do anything. The computer hasn't frozen, it's just like it's hibernating or (i don't know)...

When i click on start, my list (everything) disappears quickly, and you can't click on shut down even. When you click on the internet explorer icon on the taskbar, a window pops up that says:

"Can't open this item

It may have been moved, renamed, or deleted. Do you want to remove ths item? Yes or no"

When you click either yes/no, all the icons on the taskbar disappear.. And it continues to do nothing.

It even happens in Games...But this happens every EVERY 10 minutes... So whatever i'll be doing, it will just stop working.

I've DONE every update, and this issue wasn't from the start, it started like after a few days. I've only installed a couple of programs for eg.. Winamp, Fallout 3, VLC and Mcafee.

To fix this problem temporarily, i have to ctrl+alt+del and log off, which works. When i log back in, everything works temporarily and bugs out again. Restarting also temporarily works...

The only thing that carries on working, (if it's already open) is winamp.

Please could somebody give me any indication of what i could try. Even if you're not sure that it'll work... Anything would be appreciated here.

I've considered rolling back, but i'll wait for answers first.

Thanks, and any help is appreciated

Hello my name is Steve, I will be your helper for this evening.

You could try reinstalling Windows 7. Glad to see you filled out your System specs too, that will be helpful.

Hi Steve

Thanks very much for that piece of advice...But I'm afraid that it'll try it again. I'm hoping somebody has experienced this before and can shed light on what causes it...

Howzit again... Thanks for the welcome

It's not doing anything wack in safe mode, other than complaining about bad sound drivers, remote desktop stuff and wierd stuff... But no unresponsive effects.

To me it sounds like a corrupt install. Though that is just my opinion and I could be completely wrong, did it do this in any other installs of Windows 7?

Probably not, you can try it though. Better to try it first and see if it works.

If it doesn't work though, you could wait until the 1st of July and redownload a copy, or use a friends internet.
