Dunno what happened, but some update ran a few days ago and ever since then, many of my applications take up to 5 minutes to load. I run Sysinternal’s Process Explorer and Filemon, and whatever application I’m looking at just sits there. Performance once up is unbearable as well but still 0% CPU utilization and no file activity can be seen.
All the apps are 32 bit (BlogJet, Visual Studio 2003, RSS Bandit) so the WoW64 is in play, but I can’t tell why other 32 bit apps run just fine.
It’s really bad and I’m afraid it’s just going to get worse. Any ideas out there? Not too many people talking about x64 stuffs still.
