Windows 7: Computer booting slowly and stopping responding upon application open

Computer booting slowly and stopping responding upon application open

Hi,

I have a Toshiba Satellite C650-17Z laptop running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I came across a problem today with the computer taking 2-3 minutes on the "Starting Windows" boot screen alone, but since it has finally gotten past that process applications are taking absolutely ages to load up, and stop responding when they finally do load up.

I attempted a Startup Repair and Memory Diagnostic - the Memory Diagnostic came out fine, but the Startup Repair explained that this could be a problem with a recently installed driver.

I recently uninstalled some MSXML and SQL Server bits and bobs which I thought were unnecessary - could this be the cause of the problem?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums, Robert.

The quickest way to find out would be a sytem restore to a point before you uninstalled the software you mention.

SQL Server is needed for things like Visual Studio and Microsoft Office Outlook Business Contact Manager so unless you use these applications there shouldn't be a problem if you uninstall it.

That said, if your computer is running OK, it's best to leave things as they are, in my view.

Unfortunately, I have no restore points available. These were deleted by CCleaner only yesterday...
