    Hello dude,

    => Your system may affect some virus try to use good antivirus. and Make it Boot time scanning.
    => Your Software Backup also may affect, so Download new one. and install.
    => Try Clean Boot.

    Open Run ( Press Win+R) -> Type msconfig -> OK -> System Configuration Window open -> General Menu -> Choose Selective Startup -> 'Clear Load Startup Items' -> Click Services Menu -> Check Hide all Microsoft Services -> Click Disable all -> OK.

    => Update with your Windows.

    Good Luck.,

    Possibly the Windows Vista installer that search, find , analyse , change attributes , expand zipped files that comes in the cd when the software is initially shipped and sold, is corrupt or damaged and unable to perform its scheduled task.

    Another possibility is the incompatibility between the Windows and Programs under consultation, but probablity is low.

    Easiest suggestion is to reinstall Windows Vista with custom settings which provides full options and control.
