Hello *wave* New to the forums, signed up for this very reason.
For some reason my computer is not wanting to run most programs I try to start up. I can run Photoshop, Steam, my browser (Google Chrome), Open Office and most games, however trying to start up programs like Autodesk software (Maya, Mudbox, etc.) UDK Editor, Bitlord or anything else really, does nothing.
It appears on my 'Running Processes' list but that is about it - does absolutely nothing. After attempting to end the process from the Task Manager it sometimes disappears and sometimes doesn't. Still will not run a second time. Same problem after a reboot.
Sometimes the program abruptly launches about 20 minutes later, however it is instantly not responding and has to be force-closed.
Computer is only about 1 1/2 years old.
Specs: Intel Core -7-3820 CPU @ 3.60 GHz
RAM: 16.0 GB
System type: Windows 7 64-bit
Other than that programs seem to be randomly bugging or disappearing or uninstalling themselves at times... I've been told this is Virus work, however Avast! Antivirus hasn't picked up anything yet.
The only thing I can think of that might have changed was that I ran CCleaner a few days ago, but I did so because of this problem.
Help would be much appreciated. I am leaning towards a full reformat, though it's a bit of a bother -_-
