This could be a number of things, so let's try and cross a few things off the list.
Let's try a 'Clean Boot'.
Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and press the R key.
With the Run dialogue window open, type in msconfig and click the OK button.
You should now be looking at the System Configuration window. Click on the Services tab.
On the Services tab, youll notice a long list of services available on your PC
First, check the box labeled Hide All Microsoft Services. <<<<<<<<<<< Important
Next, click the Disable All button
By performing these two steps, you have effectively turned off all services from third-party software developers. All Microsoft services remain intact and will be ready to load when you reboot Windows.
Finally, click the OK button and reboot the system
When you reboot, you may get messages that certain hardware and software are not unavailable. This is normal.
Just be sure to hide all Microsoft services before you use the Disable All button. Otherwise, you may encounter boot up errors when you reboot your PC.
Remember, running Windows like this is just temporary.
To restore Windows to a normal start up functionality:
- Start the System Configuration Utility again (MSCONFIG)
- On the "General" tab:
- Click to select "Normal Startup"
- Click "OK"
- Choose the "Exit with Restart" option to restart your computer.
Is the system any better whilst in the 'Clean Boot'?
Can also confirm what Operating system you are running.... is it Win7?
