Whether I'm trying to upload something on any file-hosting site or as an e-mail attachment, regardless of the browser (Firefox, Opera, Chrome or the old Internet Explorer version), the process instantly freezes with the CPU usage at 25% and it's permanent unless ended from the task manager.

I just tried using my last installed browser, Tor and it worked. So I also tried in Firefox with a HTTP proxy to attach in basic HTML GMail and that also worked. It's not much help due to the bandwidth limitations, just saying as it might narrow down the problem.

Did a system restore to two months ago, that didn't do. But I noticed that right-clicking the file and clicking select actually works, should have tried that earlier.

Edit: Ugh, that still only applies to certain files. WTF?

Uninstall the browser that won't work  or reset it...you might also take a look at your browser add-ons.

As I said, I tried it with four browsers and I didn't install anything after the last successful uploads prior to this issue. Guess I'll try testing alternative browsers, any recommendations?

May be related, now I get "An error occurred, please try again later" on YouTube with all browsers except Chrome.

Keeps coming, now no sound from browsers and I didn't even restart or turn off, guess I'll do another system restore. Wrong to move this thread, importing in Photoshop CS5 or Flash CS6 has the same issue, freezing with 25% usage of the CPU

Try running a scan with your antivirus and with Malwarebytes. Things seem to be running amuck with your system. Sounds like a malware issue.

I did, found just PUP.Optional stuff. I try to avoid malware by disabling javascript when visiting potentially unsafe sites and scanning downloaded binary files. Sorry, reluctant to post that personal info, guess I'll re-install Windows.
