"Not Respoding" problem on Windows 7 64bit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. My application are pretty often 'not respoding' for a few seconds and than continue to work normally. I observe it with many applications (MediaPlayer, MovieMaker, IE, Chrome, FireFox, Thunderbird, WinAmp, Skype, ICQ, ...). I have also plenty of other software installed including antivirus and presonal firewall. So I really do not know what can be reason of these problems. Is it some sotfware issue, or some hardware (bad drivers) or what? I was cheking Event Viewer for some errors or something, but everything seems to be ok. Also there are not conflicts in Device Manager. So is there some way how to find the reason?

    Thank you,

  • Hello,

    Please update all possible drivers and disable all security softwares that you have.

    Once done, check results.

  • Hi,

    Also you could try to check this issue in Safe Mode. If the issue still occurs, check the memory via Windows Memory Diagnostic.

  • Hi,

    so I have completely removed all security software, and checked all drivers. (I have a latest versions.) I didn't try in Safe Mode yet (I will) but I've checked memory with Windows Memory Diagnostic, and also checked HDD for errors. (I had not found any problem.) But I still have this problem. Probably I will try to uninstall other software one by one to check if some is causing this. Or?

  • Does it happen right after a boot?  Is anything running in the task scheduler?
