AutoCAD Locks up at 4 minute intervals

Every 4 minutes -- exactly, My AutoCAD Map 3D 2011 64 bit installation is locking up for 30 seconds or more. Any Ideas? Windows7 Pro x64.

You could also try turning off the Communication Center by installing AcadInfoCenterOff.msi found here:

All of the patches were applied during installation, and the computer is up to date.

One of the things that I have thought of might be the Carlson Civil and Survey packs that are on the machine. Does anybody know of any bugs with this?

Also to be noted is the fact that the computer is a fresh install of windows 7, on a machine that had Windows XP x64 previously. This machine is fully equipped to run cad.

Install the Process Monitor found here:

and monitor what the acad.exe process is doing during your system lookup. This should give some more insight into what exactly is going on during your temp system locks.

Thanks everybody for the speedy response! I was able to look into the Carlson Installation and found that it had been corrupted. After a re-install, everything seems to be all good!
