- What did you install ? Win 7 with or without Service Pack 1 ? How many updates did you install after that ? Is Windows Update set to "Donwload & Notify" ?

- Sounds like you've got the "Windows Update" problem that's plagueing Windows users for - at least - 6 months. Keep an eye on what CPU & memory usage (4 Gb is rather high) is doing.
