Hey Guys,

The last month I have been dealing with not responding messages. I will be in the middle of a task or running various pieces of software and the not responding messages pop up and everything lags. I have noticed it is increasingly getting worse. I am not even sure where to start to locate the problem.

Thanks in advance,
Computerontilt!

Information addition: I have been trying to research this issue all day. There was an article on running a scannow sfc to check for corrupt files. I got a message after the scan saying that windows found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I looked at that log file but I really have no idea what I am looking for.

Hi there, could you please give some more details about your system? Helpful info would be Windows version (I assume it's 7 since you're posting here), edition, build, service pack, any anti-virus software you're running, types of programs you're seeing this problem in, etc.

Thanks!

I may suggest it's the poker sofware. I have never seen good, well-written poker or gambling software that's worth a darn.

I have been using poker software with windows xp for a few years and it never was an issue. Also, top poker client software is really top of the line.

Also, why would it affect my other programs like firefox, etc. ?

There seems to be a thread about this issue in every forum I check. I've opened an incident with Microsoft and they are scratching their collective heads. So far all I can recommend is see if there are 64 bit Vista drivers from the hardware manufacturers and try them. I've also had some luck using the Intel supplied chipset drivers, if there are any for your chipset. I've also see a decrease in the number of errors since I went to 4GB of RAM, and manually set the Page File to 256MB. This essentially stops Windows from paging memory.

Good Luck. Let us know if you find anything else that works.
