    If it helps you can ignore the //./root/CIMV2 event as this problem happens on all Windows 7 PC's once SP1 is installed, a Fix It can be found here although it doesn't strictly fix the problem just filters the event log so you no longer get //./root/CIMV2 events showing up in the logs.

    As for having no Aero is the Windows Management Instrumentation service running ? if not what happens when you try to start it ?

    uxsms isn't the Windows Management Instrumentation service, its the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service.

    Are both of these serves set to start automatically ?

    If you want to do it via a command prompt, "sc config uxsms start=auto" and "sc config winmgmt start=auto" but imho it easier to do it via computer management (right click my computer icon on desktop)

    yes both are running with no appreciable effect i think i will just wipe the drive and reinstall and get back to you if it is still doing same thing in which case i think it will be my gpu on the way out although sayi g that it does same thing no matter what gpu i use as i have 2 n560gtx-448 cards

    for some reason nvidia 3d drivers were responsible which is strange as i have never actually downloaded them when updating drivers for gpu always do clean instal and untick the 3d parts
