My computer has been slower then I ever thought possible.
After logging in, the computer will act as fast as it normally does... for about 5 seconds.
Then, even after a single click, if it doesn't actually start a program, my computer freezes for 1-30 seconds, and then doesn't even do what I wanted it to do.
The only other thing that's unusual is that it doesn't seem to be working as hard as it normally was after I got a new graphics card.

Please post your laptop manufacturer and model number.

Use Autoruns to list startup programs.

  • Download the .zip file and extract to a folder on your desktop. Open that folder, right-click autoruns and select Run As Administrator.
  • Autoruns will begin scanning immediately. Press Esc to interrupt it.
  • Click Options > Filter Options and check Hide Microsoft Entries. Click OK
  • Press F5 to begin a new scan.
  • When it is finished, click File > Save and save the report to your desktop.
  • Locate the report on the desktop, right click, select Send To > Compressed (zipped) Folder. A new archive will appear on the desktop.
  • Attach that archive file to your next post. Use the 'Full Editor' to attach files.

If it looks like I know what I'm doing, there's a pretty good chance the only reason for that is because
I once asked someone to run chkdsk /r and a BC Advisor smacked me in the back of the head.
