Well, if it's stil happening when the net is disconnected, it's obviously something running on your machine try pressing windows key and U to bring up ms narrator. You can use it to look at what programs are in the startup point on your windows menue, and also check the add/remove programs list to see what's happening.

If Jaws is doing nothing, it might also be a Jaws problem, ---- though sinse I don't use jaws myself I can't really say anything for certain I'm afraid.


i certainly know in that situation I could shut down Hal then look at restarting it with default settings, ----- but as to jaws I'm not sure.

Beware the Grue!

ok, I tried disconnecting the net, and nothing changed
I'm not sure how to check all my programs and stuff without being in
windows, but the thing is, after that welcome screen comes up, I do
anything, it won't take any commands at all, the screen is totally
blank, jaws won't even do anything, after it speaks the welcome
screen.

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.

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.
