unseated ram is common for hanging systems on laptops and if your concerned about warranty then call the people who hold your warranty and ask them if you can do it without voiding it ??

it's definately an avenue worth pursuing

ickymay,

Would not unseated RAM also be a problem in safe mode? Safe mode runs fine.

Changed HP power profile to wasteful (my embellishment) and seems to be better? Go figure. It used to work fine in HP recommended. Must have been either a W7 upgrade or possibly a N360 virus anti-computer upgrade? Was getting ready to uninstall the latter, but cross the fingers all is lightening fast now. Thanx to all who offered suggestions, until next issue over and out.

OK, this is admittedly a strange one... I have used an old (probably a 16-bit) application as my time synchronizer this I've used for quite some time. Its name is TimeRC, and is a great synchronizer as it tracks moon phases along with the time (from selectable, multiple potential time servers)....

I disabled application info and application update in services.msc
And now I am so screwed. I can't even open services.msc, I can't install an update, I can't run updates and I can't re enable anything because I can't get into services to do it. Please don't say system restore because I disabled it. If you say get a mac, then yes, I agree!:D
