Computer taking 10 minutes to start
by jordanrileya - 5/1/12 9:44 AM
I have a laptop running Windows 7, and lately it's been taking as long as ten minutes to get to a point where I can use it when I power on. (It comes out of sleep mode just fine.) It gets past the user login screen without taking too long (although longer than it should), but then it just sits on the desktop for 5+ minutes before my icons (technically Rainmeter skins) appear, and then it's still a minute or so before Chrome starts functioning at a normal speed.
Any ideas as to what could be wrong, and how I can fix it?
