If instead of folder you can see a shortcut (symbolic link) create Software Distribution folder in the same place as shown in shortcut destination (this can be viewed in shortcut properties) After system reboot press again Winkey R and type Sounds nuts but I think it had something to do with Norton Internet Security (pre-installed trial on the box). its random and almost all the time gets worst when i do multitasking task manager shows its the system process Hello everyone, let me start off by apologizing if this was in the wrong section (I was thing maybe this should have been put in the updates section?
