Hi guys. I am seriously not sure how do I go about asking this question that have been bugging me since months back. The issue is this probably happens 3 out of 10 times when I start up my PC (windows 7, 64 bit).


So what happens in these 3 times is everything starts up as per normal and then the first thing that I notice is that my Razer Synapse (thats usually part of my startup program) did not get launched and that's when I know "it is one of that time".


Any other programs other than IE will refused to be launched as well. These includes:

- Chrome

- Steam

- BitComet

- Avast Antivirus (Professional version and yes its original)


When I look at the Task Manager, it is actually registered under the "Processes" tab but nothing is actually happening on my home screen.


However, after about 30 mins or so, I am able to mysteriously launch these programs again. It is NOT a scenario where 30 mins before I try launching a program, it failed, and then 30 mins later it launches by itself. No, not like this. But rather I have to manually double click those programs though.


So I am assuming that this sounds like a virus but my Avast didn't detect anything when I do a full scan.


So Experts out there, I appreciate any form of inputs that you may have. Thanks in advance.
