I got this new laptop a few months ago (last November), and for the most part it's strong and fast. One day a few weeks ago, however, the computer started taking forever (10-15 minutes) to reboot. One of the websites I googled said that:
"Occasional slowness can be due to software errors. It may be noticed when running a particular task, but not at other times," but did not discuss how to fix this problem/even find what is causing the problem.
Note that this was a SUDDEN change; one day everything was fine, the next day every reboot took forever. This makes me think that their is some software issue, and not just a general buildup of startup programs causing this issue.
~5 minutes after windows is up and running the computer is running at its usual capacity, and everything works normally.
Any/all help is appreciated.
