Hey all, always looked around your website for quick tips and finally needed to post to get some help.
Well, what's happening is this: I start up my computer and it starts up really slow in comparison to how it normally does, when I get to the desktop the mouse freezes (bottom left corner if matters), and the computer still loads everything (drivers, startup programs and whatnot) slowly. Since the mouse doesn't work, the computer is unusable. I tried starting up in safe mode, but it seems the computer freezes on one of the startup screens (the one the says "welcome" and has the little blue ring). So I'm at a loss there. (I have a laptop)
This problem just started, I was using the computer just fine, restarted, then *boom* this is how it is.
As for background on what I've recently done, I acquired an old Kensington expert mouse pro, and downloaded a driver from driverguide (seeing how I didn't have a disc or anything) and installed the driver. Afterwords, the installer said to restart, but I decided to wait a little while and finish a little work. When I restarted is when the problem started.
If you need any more details I'll try to provide them. Your help is really really appreciated. If the problem can't be fixed, some way to access the system restore would also work. Thanks
