Here is what happens.
I install anything such as game, program, windows definition update, basically anything.
Everything is fine with PC until I start install. Then any running programs say not responding, explorer lags and anything that is on goes unavailable. The install never does take off until about 10+ minutes then start to see install running. Once the install starts running , everything goes back to normal.
Here is what I have checked.
Antivirus disabled, all programs disabled. Except install.
Checked video drivers.
Ran Resource monitor (no system drains) all sits idle until is starts installing process.
Checked Directxdiag no issues
Here are my specs.
Win7 Pro 64
Geforce GTS 250
Geforce 8600 GTS
I have troubleshot all I can think of, this happened around the same time as firefox 4 beta. Not sure if its related to that or not. I totally kill the program and it still happens.
Seems to be when the pc is running configuration check from what I can tell.
Another thing that is odd I it happens with any install even MS updates.
I also did a HIJACKTHIS scan and seen some with missing files , heard it may be overlapping software. Even though I only run Avast! Free and windows defaults besides those.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
P.S. I attached a log file of what HIJACKTHIS came up with.
I am almost sure that this is not virus or spyware related.
The HIJACKTHIS log is just for troubleshooting purposes
