I already posted this in W7 forum but I think there is something on my computer, therefore I'm reporting here to let the task force deal with my situation
Where do I start. W7 x64, i5 2500, 16GB ram...
My PC usually stays on 24-7. Few days ago I decided to shut it down and noticed that it stopped on the final blue screen on shutdown, the nice one with wallpaper, the loading cursor kept spinning...for 20 minutes. So I pushed the button forced the shutdown and thought nothing of it.
Few days later I needed to restart the machine and after going to start menu for restart, it began the "restard sequence" but stopped at the blue wallpaper screen and the cursor just kept spinning...
Today I noticed that if I'm in normal mode I can not install any software, it just get stuck halfway installation, I tried chkdsk in safe mode and the check disk in Tweaking Windows Repair that starts before the W7 loads, no error. Crystalinfo showed that the disk health is OK on both of my partitions. I ran an elevated cmd sfc scannow: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
Strange thing happens when I browse in Chrome...if I drag an image to desktop, I need to refresh the desktop before I actually see the jpg file on desktop. If I empty the recycle bin, I need to refresh to see the empty icon.
I don't know where to look. Malwarebytes scan showed no infections. MSE quick scan also reports clean. I tried rkill once and it terminated 1 process: nlssrv32.exe (PID: 2032) [WD-HEUR] if that means anything.
