    Vista64 problems

    Hi there!

    A have few problems with my fresh Vista Ultimate 64bit OS.

    • Sometimes boot takes too long, hard restart than it boots up. In many cases explorer.exe hangs/freezes at sturtup, a have to manually end the process then restart it.
    • Some programs started from quicklunch have a 30+ sec.delay.
    • In start menu it takes years to get to an entry (for example MS office group to open...), a search indicator is shown instead of icon and it hangs too.
    • When watching any video file mplayer classic freezez (like the old school w98 freez, sound shakes, screen stops..) for a few secs than it continues. Downloaded VLC player, it wokrs for now... but this isn't the solution anyway. I use VistaCodecPack with 64bit components.
    • In normal use I have 60 processes in background (at the moment there are 14 svchost.exe-s and 8 control.exe-s ?!!?!?). One antivir is running, I am behind HW firewal and windows firewall is on..

    These are my problems with this fresh install. I didn't had any trouble at install, in 50minutes I had the OS on th go with drivers installed.
    I have tried the sfc /scannow tip > Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations, hmm..
    Had a multiboot befor : XP + Vista + win7beta, I just get rid of it..thought Vista is the right joise for my hardware at the moment.

    I don't know what to do with these problems, if someone has any idea, please give me an advice what should I try.
    Thx!

    I cannot even boot to Vista now (surfing from laptop ). Just tried a restart than nothing (not even to safe mode). I'll check the errors after a repair . But I think there will be some HW issue, maybe motherboard too old for 64 bit Vista...
