If I disconnect the wireless connection until the computer has settled down, I can cut about 5 minutes off the start-up process. I use AVG 7.5 internet security and the up-date download that occurs when I first switch on each day does not help, but it is not the cause of the problem.
Sometimes, even after the computer has been on for an hour or two it will start whirling as soon as I use it, but not always.
I do a full AVG scan on a regular basis, and also check for Windows and Microsoft up-dates regularly.
Can anyone help me sort this out? I hope that I do not have to completely wipe the hard drive clean and start again.
