Here;s your Fix,
Go to google and search for CCleaner. Install it. Then follow my instructions:
Click on the registry side tab, and do an "scan for issues".
Once analyzed, you should see a ton of errors. These are old extensions, etc, that are left behind when uninstalling a prog, etc. It's 99.9% safe to clean all of this.
Click "fix selected issues", and save the backup to a location you dont usually go into. I say this so the nackup folder doesnt get in the way of your normal day to day operations.
Once cleaned, do this process at least 3x. You should continue until there are no more errors.
THis fixed mine immediately without a restart.
If I helped, take a minute and visit my site in my sig. Hook a brother up!
This is for w7 home prem 64 bit (my machine)
This program also has the ability to clean the hell out of your machine, not destroying anything in the process. Every month I run it, clean all my caches, etc, and clear up a gig of crap from surfing the web alone. Very good tool for everyone.
