Programs won't open in Windows 7 - Page 3

Had exactly the same problem yesterday, it nearly drove me insane, i don't think it's USB related, at least with peripherals (maybe USB controllers...) since i reproduced the problem with nothing plugged in except the mouse.


What i noticed is that it's when you launch a program directly through the windows explorer (Taskbar, file manager...), try opening a program through a command line prompt, it will work.


64 programs are fine, and very few 32bits apps will run too like IE (64bits awareness ?), but most 32bits programs show the problem (Firefox, Filezilla, aMSN, Skype, Steam...).


A lot of people seems to have AMD processors too, here's my system specs.


Phenom II 965BE
Gibabyte UD3H 890GX
8GB RAM


I think the problem is related to a Windows 7 update (POST SP1) of the 12/04/2011, here they are:


I proceeded by uninstalling them one by one until i got rid of the issue, i seem to have found a culprit, but maybe it's too soon to state that, no issue so far though...

My hypothesis is that certain dependent services that are freezing may cause problems with other parent services like Remote Procedure Call (RPC). RPC is used by basically everything in Windows. Check to see if you have any abnormal services hanging.

Great work - exactly the issue and precisely the fix - many thanks pats on the back all round
