Hi jett eckel,

 

Step 1: Check to see if the issue persists in clean boot state

 

Put the computer in clean boot, to figure out if any third party software is causing this issue

Enable clean boot, see Step 1 in the link below:

How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

 If everything works fine after a clean boot, you can infer that some third party services are causing the problem.

Proceed with the remaining steps to pin-point out the third party service.

After you figure out the problem causing program, you may have to update or install a higher version of the program, if you seldom use that software you can consider uninstalling

Important: - Remember to put the computer back to normal startup follow step 7 in the link.

Step 2: You may also follow the steps mentioned by Gloria – Support engineer- post dated Wednesday, June 10, 2009 9:59 PM in the link below which addresses similar issue
