Hello there Bleeping!
Seems I'm here entirely too often, I guess I love learning!
So a while back (maybe 2 months) I tweaked the startup programs and potentially disabled some necessary components by mistake.
When I start my computer now it is normal up until it gets to the user log in screen (Windows 7 on an ASUS) at which point nothing happens. The screen is black(but on). Now I have to wait a while, and I will eventually hear the welcoming sound for the user select window. At this point I have to wait about 10 seconds, and then hit the power button once to put the machine to sleep. Then the computer will turn off the monitor, go into sleep mode, at which time I wait 5 more seconds, hit the power button again, and then the user select screen shows up and the system runs normally.
I bought this computer used and the C drive is FILLED with useless, redundant fluff-ware from ASUS and Nokia and all that jazz.
Is there a way to find out what I disable by accident and re-enable it?
My C drive is also running very low on space because of all the fluff ware. Of 116Gig I have 8 gigs left. My D drive is 327Gig so I try to keep every program installation over there. But some of it slips over to the C drive no matter what.
I know it's 2 problems but I'll just the first one first! Thank you!
