i dont think i've ever came across a similar issue. Actually thats a lie. My buddy had PokerStars installed and it would freeze everytime he opened it. I had to repair the disk with chkdsk to correct the issue. Prolly a bad sector on the disk, chkdsk marked as dirty.

you can try to get to the event viewer for more details.
