So, currently my fathers computer is having a rather odd issue. The computer is acting extremely slow, when it boots normally it takes about 5 minutes to get past the windows logo and another 10 to get into the actual windows, much longer for anything to load. The resolution/color looks like safe mode, but it is not. system restore/lots of programs won't open, and no changes will save in msconfig.
Now I'm pretty convinced his HDD is going(It's a very old maxtor IDE HDD), but I guess it could also be corrupt windows files. What do you guys think?
