@oldMX: I still agree with your assessment of it being IE related. I'm looking at it from the standpoint of my HP machine and similar symptoms.

@brian: follow through with oldMX and karlsnooks. I'm not having much success with Coolsense. Here's where I am on my machine. After cleaning up the previous Coolsense, I installed Coolsense 2.0 - Windows Program Compatibility Assistant complained and I clicked reinstall with recommended settings. It seemed to complete, yet there was nothing in my Start Menu, no Coolsense.cpl (Control Panel) and nothing in Programs and Features to uninstall.
Setup log:
[2012-05-29 14:48:09] GetThermalControl(): Get ThermalDiags.ThermalControl Failed 0x800401F3
[2012-05-29 14:48:09] Install: This system does not support HP CoolSense.
[2012-05-29 14:51:05] GetThermalControl(): Get ThermalDiags.ThermalControl Failed 0x800401F3
[2012-05-29 14:51:05] Install: This system does not support HP CoolSense.
This is probably due to the services (HP Auto, HP ClientSvc, HP Services) all in a stopped state (I most likely did that when I first got the machine - HP bloat).

I'm just going to give up on Coolsense, it seems to be tied too closely to other HP software, Support Assistant in particular. I'll revisit at some point after talking to HP, although I'm not sure it's all that important to have running - cool (sorry) perhaps, but necessary?

Good luck, I'll keep on eye on this thread - the solution to your issue might have relevance to my own.

first:
Follow this procedure precisely. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation:
UPDATING YOUR WIN 7
1. ASSURE THAT YOU RECEIVE ALL UPDATES
WIN | type WINDOWS UPDATE | ENTER |
Change settings (left-hand column) |
checkmark all four of the boxes | OK
button

Approve any dialog boxes presented. Let Windows install any update features.

WIN is the key with the Microsoft flag on top.

2. INSTALL CRITICAL UPDATES
Check for Updates
(left-hand column)
Install ALL critical updates.
Restart your computer (even if not prompted)

Repeat this procedure until there are no more critical updates.

DO NOT TRUST the “Windows is up to date” in center of dialog. until you see that TWICE IN A ROW!

3. INSTALL IMPORTANT UPDATES
Use the “critical update” procedure until all important updates are installed.

4. INSTALL OPTIONAL UPDATES
Use the “critical update” procedure until all optional updates are installed.

Under Optional updates you will be presented with a list of about 34 language updates.
You can hide those updates so that aren't continually notified of those updates. When you click on 34 optional updates are available, then you
a) highlight all of the language updates,
b) right-click anywhere in the highlighted list.
c) click on Hide Updates,
d) OK button.


UPDATE GOLDEN RULES

Install ALL, yes, ALL updates.
This is Win 7 and not Vista or XP (eXPired).

UPDATE IS HUNG –TAKING FOREVER
Hung is very doubtful unless you interrupted updates.

CTRL + SHIFT + ESC key combo will pop-up the Task Manager.
Lo and behold, Windows Update is still running!

You hold down the CTRL and SHIFT keys.
While holding them down, tap the ESC key once.

one thing i noticed before reinstall my windows experience rating for my ssd was 7.3 it has now dropped to 5.9 that seems like a very drastic drop.... could that be to do with the data erase that i performed on it??
