Slow startup/shutdown, no auto refresh, update hangs
I just installed a retail copy of win 7 on my laptop and have been experiencing some issues. At first everything worked fine but out of the blue my desktop/folders have not been auto-refreshing. Whenever I try to delete or create a new folder I have to manually refresh to the folder in order to view it.
When shutting down my laptop it takes 5+ minutes and when my desktop is loading after booting up the laptop it takes several minutes for everything to load and for the win 7 chime.
Finally, it won't allow me to update. When I try to use the windows updater it hangs for a while on "creating restoring point" (which may be normal) but then permanently hangs on installing update 1/16 at 0%. If I try canceling the update nothing happens and even when I try to shut down the laptop it attempts to install the updates but hangs on update 1/16.
From researching these issues I've realized that the auto-refresh problem is not uncommon and has something to do with a network. This may be unrelated but these problems only started to occur when I was transferring pictures via a USB stick.
Anyways thanks for reading, is there anything I can do that would help?

Welcome to SF, Dante19. Please complete your System Specs.
Did you add any new software after which the problem occurred?
Does it autorefresh in safe mode?
Do you have the latest video driver installed?
If you start msconfig, tab to startup, and uncheck ONLY items your are positive are safe, do this make a difference?
Please try these suggestions and get back.
