I seem to have an issue lately with my laptop. When I startup my PC, sometimes the icons on my desktop are not there. In fact, everything is missing except the background. At times I can wait 5 minutes or so and they will slowly appear. Other times, I have let it sit for long periods of time and the background just stays and the icons and such never appear. Then I have to hold down my power button until the laptop reboots and hope that this time, it will boot properly. I have gone through my startups and unchecked everything that is unneccessary for startup so I don't think that it is just a bunch of programs booting making it slow. It must be something else. I have a clean hijackthis log so it shouldn't be bugs either. I am not very technically inclined so I would really appreciate some advice. Thanks!
