Windows 7: Wermgr.exe multiple instances Jamming processor time

10 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) Service Pack 1 (build 7601)
Wermgr.exe multiple instances Jamming processor time

This is a reboot of a similar thread in this same topic.

The file Wermgr.exe, which I understand is windows' error reporting app, is litterally going haywire on my system. From the moment I turn my pc on to the time I shut down as many as 20 or more instances of the app are running at a time. It's essentially like a virus has ahold of it. I've filled in as much spec info in my profile as I could supply. So far it's been 3 days of wermgr endlessly running so it's not a backed up queue and I don't think forcing the system to ask me about each report is gonna solve the problem. Anyone know if there's a virus that takes hold of the wermgr function?

I also want to add that I'm unable to update my NVIDIA graphics driver, installer gets to the point where it looks like it's actually going to DL and install the update aaaaaand.....frozen, EVERY TIME, the update crashes. Now, because I can't update, it looks like I can't watch certain kinds of videos.
