In my case ESET was the culprit. I have contacted them and am waiting for a reply. Thanks very much chev65, you saved me considerable grief.

At least the problem was narrowed down a bit which made it easier for you to solve. Nod32 seems to be a problem for a bunch of people. Now it looks like ESET us causing the same types of problems. One of the many reason's I can't stand using anti virus programs.

But how to protect a PC from virus then?

Windows 7 have firewall against hackers -ok.
Windows 7 have anti-spyware. -ok
But without AV software you are at virus targeting system?

Windows 7(by default) is a rock solid system, but the problem causing stuff are app and drivers written for previous versions of Windows...
The solution here is update your drivers and programs to newest versions and wait until they make a Windows 7 compatible version...
And the ONLY requirement for a 64 bit system is having a 64 bit compatible CPU.
Requirement is not for RAM(it only expands the address of RAM increasing capacity - i have an older comp with 1.5 GB RAM running faster and more stable than a 32 bit OS)

chev65 is an advanced user. It is reasonable to conclude that he is taking the appropriate measures to ensure that he does not infect the network in the event that his system is compromised. A person of lesser qualifications would be thoroughly bashed for making such a statement.


I do not like using AV software either. I use AV software, nonetheless.

I agree, my PC is significantly faster with Windows 7 64-bit then with Windows XP 32-bit, i realy like it. I am still on 30 day test, but i am 100% sure that i aint coming back to XP, wich is great OS also and it serve me perfectly from 2002. As for memory thing, i have 2GB and on idle W7 use 500-600MB, and it left enouf memory even for games (i played game Spore @max settings). But anyway, i will add 2GB more becuse its "cheap" investment

I've found Windows 7 64-bit takes about 300-400mb more than 32-bit. Temperatures of the Processors are also increased by about 5c. These are the results of my tests. I think the temperatures of the HDD are also higher but not sure about this one.

Still, I do notice the 64-bit being more responsive, the 32-bit has lag when shutting the same programs, opening apps. No it's not a placebo effect!

Overall I think if you play games on your system, you should get at least 3GB RAM and 64-bit. If you have less than 3GB RAM, you can still get 64-bit with fast performance, just don't bother playing any games. There simply won't be enough RAM for smooth gameplay.

There are exceptions however, like software not working/32-bit emulation being slow on 64-bit. One example being Sandboxie. I myself have 32-bit, will switch to 64-bit as soon as it's confirmed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has same performance in 64-bit compared to 32-bit.
