Since upgrading my Windows 8 laptop to 8.1 RTM it seems to 'hang' with 100% disk usage for about 20 minutes. After that it works ok.
I've established that the Network List Service (
netprofm.dll) is recreating 4 x 2Gb files in
C:\Windows\System32\networklist\icons. Four files are created ending
_48.bin. I guess these should be icons? If I delete them they are recreated at the next boot.
It's made my machine unusable. I've tried disabling the Network List Service in Services but it seems to still get started somehow. Any ideas how to stop this?
