  1. Making a guess on the small amount of information you have given I would suspect that there is either a problem with the file system on your hard drive or Win 7 is trying to update with some patches and is having some trouble. Once it is booted run some tests on your hard drive and make sure it is not about to fail on you. If you cant find anything obvious try restoring Win 7 to an earlier restore point and see if this eliminates the problem.
  2. sorry but i dont know what else to give you, my information itself is limited.

    hard drive seems great, loads fast and doesnt seem like it has a problem, as when i am booted up theres no problems

    ive actually tried restoring it, didnt work
    anything else?

  4. thanks for the reply, I have already tried this and forgot to mention it. Still is about the same boot time.
  5. Oh, well maybe you just need to do something to improve computer performance.


    Boots slow and runs slow is a common problem for all Windows user. It's not all related with hardware, registry, viruses or spyware!

    "No matter how fast or shiny computers might be when they're new, they all seem to get slower over time." Microsoft claimed that on their technical forum(Windows 7 forum).

    In fact, Windows built-in a lot of services and startup item start with system. So if you want a faster computer, you need to disable some of them first.

    I saw an article before. It descripe how to make your windows faster.
