Windows 7: Certain Windows 7 applications slow after power outage

Certain Windows 7 applications slow after power outage

I run windows 7 on a laptop (Asus G74SX) w an SSD and i forgot to connect it to the battery when i took a nap.

Lately my battery is not in perfect state and when this happens, reconnecting the plug won't let me resume system, i have to restart windows 7 and get the message that windows improperly shut down etc etc...

So usually everything good but this time, firefox took a huuuge time to open ( 1 min or more), however chrome instantly opens. I was thinking it was cache/memory firefox problem, so i clean them but still no difference. Also i run my computer w user and admin and the UAC dialog when prompted to open an application take huge time ( same time for firefox to open). After those things are open, the computer runs smoothly but it messed up some applications ( Like PostgreSQL 8.4 won't start )

Also i couldn't access 1st Windows Safe Mode pressing F8 after first few restarts. After doing a shutdown and leaving the computer off for a few seconds, now i can access it.

I also run the chkdsk utility and windows made small corrections.. here is the log

Windows has finished checking your disk.
Please wait while your computer restarts.


So resuming the Info :

- Boot is super fast as usual (SSD)
- Certain applications ( FireFox or UAC requiring for password ) take 1 min to run, works properly after that
- Skype instantly opens w windows startup put the Skype Home Menu freezes for 30-40s
- Other applications (Google Chrome) instantly opens
- Because of the messed startup, PostreSQL won't start.

Any suggestions?

Thanks you.

re run the chkdsk command with a /R to attempt to scan for bad sectors, if you have bad sectors i suggest you change your harddisk.
