Hey guys, Ive got an interesting one here.
I have a customer with Multiple HP 6560b laptops and a few of these have all experienced the issue below. So far we have been fixing these with a reload of Windows.
Machines are running Windows 7 Pro x32, are joined to a domain and have Sophos anti-malware
EXE files themselves are fine so its not the file association (I can load stuff like IE, and Control) but alot of other apps start loading.. consume a small amount of ram (Less than 1MB) and hang.
I've noticed that the c# debuger and CSC both appear to have alot of threads when viewed in process explorere
The affected apps have no child processes and dont "Hang" they just present nothing at all to the user
Machines have been scanned with MSSE offline scan and Malware bytes
The issue affects all profiles on the machine and Extremely long startup and shutdown times are experienced.
No high CPU time, No high disk usage..
Its like a debugger is running but I cant find where from (no visual studio or similar)
Any ideas where to start
