    "... try to figure out what it is." -- WOW, that's really useful!!

    I think the op is doing that by posting their problem in the first place.

    As to something that is useful -- some instances of this problem have been tied to nVidia SW components. Check to see if you have either of the following installed:

    1) nVidia MediaShield

    2) nVidia - ForceWare Network Access Manager

    If so, remove them and see if that fixes the problem.
