Hi.

First, check what background programs are running at startup. Virus checkers, programs that auto update, and windows system updates themsleves can all be resource hogs, ---- especially at start if they all want to start at once.


it was for this reason that I couldn't run Avg on my old desktop, because whenever it did a full system scan (which it insisted on doing at startup each day),k it slowed everything down ridiculously.

The same thing used to happen when my university network decided to turn on windows update, and my computer tried to download a years worth of updates at startup without my knowing.

i'd suggest disconnecting your net connection, then starting your system and looking at what's going on with it, ---- making certain unnecessary programs aren't running automatically.

hth.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Subject: [Audyssey] OT: Need help ergently!


I'm sorry that this is off topic, and I hope no one takes offense, but
I need help, badly
Heres the problem. I left today, and shut down my system, things were
working fine then, however, when I came back, something went horribly
wrong, I turned on the system, and it booted up like normal. The
windows logon screen came up, but it took forever to do anything.
Here is the real puzzling part, the window went away, and the desktop
never loaded, however, if I push the power button on my PC, the logoff
screen shows up, and it shuts down like normal. I've tried rebooting,
I've tried to reboot even in safe mode, nothing works, it just keeps
doing the same thing. I've even tried unplugging it and plugging it
back in, although that really probably served no perpose.
As it stands, right now I'm still having this issue, and am at a loss
as to what to do. Any help would be appriciated, as all my stuff is on
that system, I am having to write this message from my laptop.
