Hi, when I boot up my computer its really slow to load. It gets to the start up screen relativly ok, but once I log in, it takes forever for it to load and sometimes it takes a few reboots to get it to load without freezing. does anyone have any ideas?

hey fish, when that has happens to me. I try to figure out if there are conflicting programs like two
different anti-virus programs. If you know what tasks are in your start up list, that may tell you something.

There are many causes that could contribute to these symptions. You might profit by looking at the "slow computer checklist" linked to below, in particular Step 4 and the maintenance points immediately following that step.

In addition, if you have a lot of icons on your active desktop, remember that each of these take time to load, even if relatively quick, as do extra fonts you may have downloaded.
Hope this proves helpful.
