How did you do this "conversion" from dynamic to basic? Did you wipe out all partitions or did you try to use some application that didn't ask you to do that? What application, if any?

If it was entirely successful, I wouldn't expect it to have any lingering effects on boot speed or opening folders or applications. So, you may have something else going on.

Post a screen shot of Windows Disk Management.

You say you reinstalled Windows 7.

What did you use for installation media? A burned ISO? A DVD purchased from a retail store? Or what?

Did you do a clean install in which you deleted all partitions?

If you used a valid ISO and the ISO was burned properly and you deleted ALL partitions before installing Windows, then I don't think your problems are related to dynamic disks or any conversion process from dynamic to basic or the mini partition tool.

A screen shot of Windows Disk Management might possibly reveal something, but you say you can't do that.

I suppose there is some chance the burn was bad, so you might reburn the ISO and try again, deleting all partitions using Diskpart.
