Windows 7 Home Ultimate x64.

Any more suggestions? Or would you say I'm just going to have to deal with this one?

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Well I have looked through this thread again looking for a clue. So the first thing I see is that you are running AVG. That could be the problem. Just search this Forum to get expert opinion on this A/V. The advice will come back to get rid of it and install Windows Secrity essentials. The other point i note is that you are running Windows 7 Ulto=imate version. Where did you get your copy of Ultimate as it is an unusual choice for average users like us?

Windows 7 Home Ultimate x64.

Uninstall AVG and replace with Windows Essentials huh? Well, I'll give it a try.

And I got the system builder version of Windows Ultimate. Comes at a discounted price if you purchase several bits of hardware along with it. Mind you, I'm also a programmer and a studying 3D artist. I don't think I fit the definition of 'average user'.

Mind you, back when I had the basic home 32bit edition of Windows 7 before on my old computer I also had this same problem, so it's not the version of Windows either.
