i am new to this forum after a friend recomended posting my problem.
I am running a Dell Netbook on Windows 7.
I would be very greatfull if someone could please advise me on how to fix this problem.
When i start up windows it can take between 20- 30 minutes for the netbook to settle down and to function.
In the cpu usage it says that its hovering around 89 -100% cpu usage.
Mozilla firefox does nothing for these 20 minutes.
to try and solve this i uninstalled it and reinstalled it. I ran a full AVG scan. I ran a full malaware scan.
I ran ccleaner and also a regedit program. Everything came up clean. Yet the computer will do nothing for 20 minutes after start up. I am using only 35GB of 140Gb on c drive. Have uninstalled anything which is not in use.
Very frustrating as waiting 20 minutes for the machine to settle, and not knowing what is causing this is very frustrating.
Could anyone advise on what it might be?
thanks for any help in advance
