    I am not repeating the entire issue here. The subject says it all... Kindly visit

    Basically, 90% of installed apps stop working all of a sudden... the screenshots in that thread illustrate the problem.

    Using OEM version of Vista Home Premium 32 bit + SP1 + all updates + latest patches for every app & driver

    System free of viruses & spyware...

    Please help!

    Know this is probably going to sound crazy -- but your post said nothing was running but IE7. My experience SINCE installing SP1 is that IE7 causes my machine to practically come to a halt! It's not just CPU -- I also have a CPU meter running in the sidebar; it's more general than that. Once I launch IE7, I can do practically nothing else until I kill it.

    If I use Firefox instead, there's no problem.

    So, at this point, my bet is on IE7.
