I'm at the end of my wits with this problem, and if I can't figure out what to do, I'm likely to just format my drive. I'd rather not do that right now.
Whenever I start my computer, it will immediately be crippled by cvtres.exe (aka Microsoft® Resource File To COFF Object Conversion Utility) either consuming 99% of the CPU on its own, or starting multiple processes that end up consuming 99% of the CPU. I know this is an inbuilt program on the OS, but I can't figure out why it's behaving this way. While it's acting this way, my computer is extremely slow (Firefox -barely- works, and all of my IM programs are basically worthless at this point). I've tried googling the problem, but everything's come up short.
Anyone have any ideas?
