I would simply be trying to start a program, and it will just not load at all. I would check in task manager, and most programs that stall while loading would just appear with only 500K-1500K bytes of private memory. Interestingly, when this happens, task manager will load correctly, but trying to press "load processes for all users" will cause task manager to just wait forever. It will ignore all clicks on it, and will just give dings whenever I click on it. This problem does not remedy itself until i force restart the computer.

 

I tried running Speccy, but it would take about a half-hour for every category, and completely stopped at the graphics and storage categories. I ran it again in safe mode.

Do any of your applications run?

 

Is your antivirus active?

 

Was there an event when this started happening?

Because program that would not run in normal boot mode has run in Safe mode i would suggest you follow the instructions at Microsoft website to boot Windows Os into clean boot state to eliminate startup services and programs from list of troubleshooting steps for your issue.

I'll try that the next time I get on that computer. There is no antivirus, especially since the installer won't even load. My best guess is it's a driver causing it.

Please download and run SeatTools for Windows.
 
Before the installation begins you will be prompted to either Decline or Accept the terms of the installation, click on I Accept.
 
Once the installation begins you will see an image similar to the one below.

1.  SeaTools for Windows will search for HDDs and SSDs on your computer.  Please remove any external storage devices connected via USB ports.
 
2.  Detected Drives will list the HDDs and SSDs found.  Place a check mark in the drive box you want to run the scan on.
 
3.  You will see Basic Tests toolbar above Detected Drives, move the mouse pointer over this to open the test options.  Please click on Long Generic Test
 
4.  This will start the scan.  When the scan is complete you will see the result under Test Status , please post the results in your topic.

5.  The test will indicate either Pass or Fail.  Post the results of the scan in your topic.
 
6.  Click on Help, then click on View Log File.  If the scan failed take a screen shot of the Log File and post it in your topic.
 
 

Please download GSmartControl and run it.
 
When GSmartControl opens it scans your computer for all mass storage devices.  When the scan is finished it will display all of the drives found.  Double click on the drive which contains your operating system.
 
In the next window that opens the Identity tab is selected which displays all of the data pertaining to your drive.

Click on the Perform Tests tab.  When the next window opens select the Short Self-Test, then click on Execute.
 
When the scan has completed it will show that the drive either passed or failed.  If it failed click on the View Ouput.  Copy the text and paste this in your topic.

Seems like it could be a hard drive issue. Follow the steps dc3 provided to check your hard drive for issues.
