When ever I start my computer everything freezes for 3 minutes or so. I can click on My Computer but it won't load (only show the flashlight), can't click on anything on the toolbar (shows the mouse with a sandclock) and basicly can't do enything.
After 3 minutes everything loads up and all the things I tried to open are bieng oppend.

Hello Dolev Hadar
Freezing up is probably due to one particular program process hogging all your resources (memory). Before anything can run on your computer it must be loaded into RAM first. When a program's file becomes corrupt it can begin to use excessive amounts of your RAM, causing freeze ups to occur.
To find out which is the faulty program, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, to bring up the Task Manager. Next, go to the processes tab and double click on CPU. If there is one particluar task which is using most of your RAM (exluding System Idle Process which always uses 99), note the name of it and put it into Google to see what this file is.
If you find that you do not want this file running, try uninstalling the faulty program and re-installing it, or just get rid of it completely.
Hope this helps with your problem and good luck..
Charles
