Windows 7: programs wont open

programs wont open

After computer sits for a while expecially overnight i have to reboot to get ANY programs to open. i have contacted Hp and they had me disable most processes and startups but it still does it. I have to click on reboot several times to get it to start. i have disabled the display and sleep shutdown to NEVER. I have upgrade my Nvidia drivers last night and still does it.
I use AVG virus scan and Pro version of Advanced System Care. I really dont like shutting down services as they were designed for a specific function. I have not disabled any microsoft services though.
I have only had this unit for about 6 months .

I wonder if the Windows 7 registry cleaner and repair in Advanced System Care might have broken something?

What do you mean "broken something". With all due respects a more detailed help would be appreciated

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 wont' open ANY 32 bit programs
I've searched around and I couldn't find anyone else who had this issue. I updated from Vista x64 today, and when I booted up, almost none of my programs would open. I discovered that is because my computer will not run any 32 bit programs :shock: Anyone have a solution for this?
