I would be grateful to anyone who can help with this problem.
Recently I have noticed that upon starting up my computer I get a message stating that the computer had not been shut down properly the last time it was on, and asking whether I want to enter safe mode.
Upon opting to start up as normal, both the process of getting into windows and shutting down is extremely slow, also if I click to enter my computer, this is also extremely slow and the search light animation continues for over 10 minutes.
I have gone through start up manager and removed anything which might be causing a slow down. Often when turning the computer off it hangs for a very long time and needs to be switched off manually.
I use norton internet security and firewall and so hopefully this is not a virus.
Nothing has particularly changed recently to bring on this slowdown.
Grateful if anyone can help with this.
