Looks like a problem with disk response time. Can you check if you have no problem with HDD, please?

OK, looks like no problem with HDD. Try to run this test once again when you have problems with task bar. But it looks like a problem somewhere else :/

I dont think the first one is related, but if this CLSID is for the "Network Connection Manager", might be related to poor performance with incoming remotes....
