Ypu are not alone it seems to be related to third party drivers, especially nVidia chipset or graphics cards This is from another site

Here is a workaround:

1) Launch services.msc from a run command
2) Find the SLUNotify service & stop it
3) Find the Software Licensing service & stop it (it may say that ReadyBoost needs that service to run; stop it anyway)
4) Restart both services, starting with Software Licensing

That's all. No reboot needed. Kudos to Toby at the nVidia forums.
