So I have a HP Envy 17 that has given me grief pretty much constantly since I got it a few years ago. The biggest problem at the moment is that the computer takes forever to start. Today I waited around 10 minutes before I could actually use the computer.
Have googled and tried every possible solution that I could find but nothing seems to help. I think one of the major culprits is the fact that the computer has two graphics cards which it's switching between (internal Intel and an NVIDIA one), this seems to have been the problem for other users.
Furthermore, a number of programs such as Dropbox are starting when I start the computer even though auto startup is disabled.
Last week I posted in the malware forum here and got help looking through my computer for this but nothing was found.
Would be grateful for any help I can get regarding this!
