Now that is heavy! That will require some concentrated reading for me.
Gets your gray cells churning. That's good.

You should add iphlpsvc to the list, also known as "IP Helper," often a service hide beneath a SCVhost bundle. I was having severe cpu usage problems and isolated it to this file, it's apparently a common occurrence.

Awesome list and one which I have printed off because everybody gets that senior moment now and then and forget simple commands.

You forgot this one

What is it?: PSR stands for "Problem Steps Recorder" it takes a snapshot of your current problems and records each section you click on.
What can it do?: With PSR you can record your activities and it adds notes to each snapshot. You can also pause and add your own comments to each snapshot as well. It highlights and focuses on each snapshot automatically, it can also be played as a slideshow and can be opened in Internet Explorer and saves as a Zip file.
What do I press PSR can be started in a number of different ways. The best way is to Windows Button>Press "R"> Type into the command window psr.exe or PSR.exe either way it does not matter. or you can Start>Help and Support> then type into the search window PSR. Another simple way is to press F1 and then type into search window PSR.

Windows 7 will not open new processes after running for a while
This is by far the most difficult to pin down problem with Windows I have ever encountered.

Any processes already open will continue to function normally, but nothing new...

Processes starting, but not showing windows
An annoying problem (and one that I had in several different Vista installs, as well) has cropped in Windows 7 for me. I start programs (Dreamweaver, Itunes, VLC media player, etc.) and I get nothing. The task manager shows running processes, but I get nothing on the screen. Anyone? Jeremy
