Windows 7: Win 7 running slow after logon for over 5 minutes

That's the Scheduled setting of a System Restore point, not running System Restore which would be absurd.

System restore cannot be disabled but the settings can be changed and this fixed the issue on my system. Unchecked highest priority and set it to run when the system is idle. I noticed when PID 4 was running it seemed to be cataloging every file which makes sense for a restore point and this was tying up the system.

How do I change the priority? I think the file is rstrui.exe but I can't find anything in properties to change the priority. I have enabled the hidden Win 7 admin account which loads up quicker too because I was sick of being denied access - and I am now contemplating using it to set up an new Win 7 account with full admin rights for myself

On my sytem, using task scheduler navigate to systemRestore under windows/microsoft. Left click brings up box with task ID SR. Right click on SR and select properties window. Under general tab unclick run with highest privileges. Under conditions check start...idle and set time -- I use 10 minutes because my system is set to sleep in 30 minutes which gives SR plenty of time to run when I stop using it.

Thanks for that Duh, I had the same settings for system restore. Although there were multiple triggers, "At startup" and at 00:00 every day. I wonder if I should disable it as I don't need scores of restore points. As a temp fix I can log on as administrator, then log off and log on to my normal account. That way I can be more productive.

If you set it to run when idle it should not bother you at all.

The system is set to give a current restore point so you don't lose work. Mine does not allow disabling and it is not a good idea.

Might be solved

I needed to use my laptop for a number of tasks so I set it to hibernate for a few weeks. I have re installed windows 7 as per advice - took 4 hours but to be fair it was scanning for stuff installed on the drive etc. I had to burn a win 7 installation DVD from an iso file as HP only provided a restore to Factory option which would have wiped everything. I wanted to avoid formatting the drive and use a fresh Win 7 installation as a kind of repair tool. I backed up files etc and used Belarc adviser to record configurations just in case. I've got away with having to do lot's of re installation of software. A few hiccups with MS accepting my product key but all is up and running now. Next logon I'll report how things are.

Did you follow the steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

There are Special Notes for HP OWners at the end which help you decide which OEM partitions to keep. If you also kept the old Windows 7 partition (as insurance) then we can help you remove it when ready along with any other unneeded partitions.
