Have had Windows 7 installed on a month old laptop, been having the same issue from the start, but was too lazy to fix it.
About 70% of the time everything runs smoothly, but every once in awhile this massive ugly bug happens. Youtube won't load, games won't open, some programs don't open...they all freeze up when they're loading. Youtube freezes up IE, when booting up Warcraft 3 I get stuck on the black loading screen...lots of other programs are affected, too. I have no idea why the bug happens, and it just pops up randomly...can't even seem to find a cause for it.
However, when this bug isn't happening, none of these problems occure. I can't seem to find any relationship between the problems other than they all freeze at the loading screen. Restarting the computer is annoying but usually fixes the problem...help!
