The subject system is Win7 with all updates. Ironically, I was using it to download DDS for my wife's computer, which is REALLY sick. First red flag was that although I could get to bleepingcomputer.com, I couldn't download anything from there. I wound up using a linux system to get DDS. Then I ran DDS on the system, and by the end of 15 minutes I have 54 hash marks, but that's as far as it seems to want to go.
Other data: this is in safe mode. I can't start Task Manager, although the system is responding to mouse movements fine. In standard mode, the system got to a dozen or so hashes, then hung so hard I couldn't move the mouse.
Thanks for your interest.
