Hi there,

My problem is that my computer is very slow on startup and in general even though very little resources are being used. In the task manager the CPU usage rarely exceeds 10%. I have disabled all unessential startup programs and services and have defragged my HDD. There's a very little possibility of malware as i run Avast! which is fully updated.

Specs:
MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
Intel Pentium T4500 @ 2.30GHz (49 C Average)(>10%)
174GB free in HDD.
4.00 GB DDR2 (22% used on idle)

Hi,

I've run my AV and there seems to be no problem whatsoever. I think the problem maybe hardware related. On a laptop, is it normal for the fan to be humming 50-70% of the time?

Your booting time takes about how many minutes?
