Very rarely (twice, so far), this problem occurs in windows explorer, and once happened in Add&Remove programs when I clicked the "remove" button on a program while cleaning up my computer (The program was Broadcom Management Programs, which was removed without incident).
I have had the problem for a very long time now, only recently did it begin to annoy me enough to post this here. It started up somewhere around the time I updated my Spybot Search and Destroy program (after using it for like a year without bothering to update it), but I have long since removed it and switched to AVG Free, however the problem still persists.
This is a screenshot of my processes currently. (Nicholas is me, last name omitted)
My CPU is Intel® Celeron® CPU 2.40GHz. I don't know exactly how much RAM I have, but it's not terribly high. I never changed any of the hardware in my computer before or after the problem surfaced, however, so I don't think that it is the culprit.
