Just started having an issue on my work laptop (win8164). Everything
was fine Friday, no updates done Friday or over the weekend.

Now today a couple of client packages I run on this machine take 5
minutes plus to launch.

I've tried reinstalling the client software, but that did nothing.

I've been googling the issue but have not found anything yet.

Any ideas? Besides fdisk, going to linux, or anything like that? ;-)
