This bar lengthens (more slowly than usual) and gets hung up at "Waiting for application services".

Mods, if I've posted to the wrong place, sorry. Please move it to wherever it should be.
have you triedrepairing permissions or resetting the pram?
as far as archive and install, I usually just do an erase and install.
