I had big cpu load.

Processexplorer's window starts up, but seconds later, the info arrives.

Some other things you can try:

Log in with a different User Account and see if you have the same problem.
You may want to try an ADMIN account and a STANDARD account.

Start Windows in Safe Mode and see if you have the same problem.

Run a System File Check.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run a Check Disk.
Disk Check

Do you have the latest version of Process Explorer (version 15.22 July 16, 2012) ?
You could also try the LIVE Process Explorer to see if that runs ok.

You could ask about this in the Sysinternals Forum or search that forum for an answer.

You're welcome and i hope that forum can help you.

Based on what you have tried and I've read, it may be a registry issue.

I don't suggest or recommend manually editing the registry...
If you do end up doing this, make sure you have backup(s) before making any changes!

I always create a system backup image before making registry changes...
