Click start button, type into search: 'msconfig' press enter, goto the start up tab, uncheck unneeded start up programs, obviously leave anti-virus checked & other security programs.

Hello TaylorPark, welcome to Seven Forums!


Have a look at this first tutorial linked below to see if there are some factory installed progs/apps that start when the PC is started that may be causing this issue for you and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

i already tried the msconfig thingy and unchecked everything and in didnt work. thanks for helping tho anyways,, i just remembered that my laptop (toshiba qosmio g50 model no. pqg55c-01r039 haha i looked on the bottom of my computer) was originaly a windows vista computer that i got upgraded to windows 7. i thought that this would be the reason that the start up is very slow, but when i first used the laptop when it was windows 7, it was perfectly fine. But one day after not using my laptop for about 3 days it worked up it took VERY long to boot up. so i was just wondering if the upgrade did something to my laptop :P

Anything is possible, but let's get a boot trace to be sure. I apologize this isn't on SF yet as a tutorial, but for now follow the instructions here for creating a boot trace. Let us know once you've finished (and have the resulting file) - it'll be large, so you will have to zip it up with 7zip and upload it to a file hosting site (like mediafire) for us to download and analyze it for you.

A clean install is always better than an upgrade. You can do a clean install with an upgrade disk!!

You tried it? Did not work how? To get accurate data, this is the tool we need to use. If you can tell us in detail what specifically didn't work (error messages, etc), we can help you get it "fixed" and installed.
