So I have a really weird problem on my computer. When I launch some 32-bit applications from within explorer, it automatically suspends the process. When I say Explorer, I mean start a program from the Run box, Start Menu, or double-clicking on an exec in Explorer folder.

If i take that same executable and launch it directly from a command prompt or if another process launches it, like Chrome, it launches fine.

If I use process explorer and resume the suspended process, it starts normally.

The weird thing is it is only certain processes and there is no rhyme or reason to it.

Any thoughts? I have checked for malware and have found nothing.

Did you check the Event Viewer for information? See if anything is being reported or else? Using MiniToolBox and the "List Last 10 Errors in Event Viewer" could be useful.

You could also see if the issue occurs while under a clean boot:

Waiting for ESET scan to finish and then trying the safe boot.
