Windows 7: Very slow boot time after logging in

Very slow boot time after logging in

I just updated w/AMD's Driver Packaging Version 14.501.1003-141120a-177998C

I am having some problems. The laptop will boot quickly but once I type in my password the cursor/orb in the middle of the screen freezes. It gets to the desktop and freezes. 10 seconds between responses. Eventually everything speeds up and the PC seems to work fine.

I had 4 mapped drives and disconnected them all but that did not help.
EVent viewer did say that the AMD driver failed and recovered but that is only ONE instance.
I also see several fails of skydrive failing as well.

I am not sure what to look for here....I can't tell what is dragging the laptop down using process explorer because once PE begins to function there is nothing slow to display!

I have run malware bytes and MSE.

Another bizarre thing....if I remote into the laptop it seems to knock something loose and it will function quickly via remote. Once I kill remote and log back into the laptop its fine.

If I lock the laptop I get similar results.

Problem with the AMD driver? Can I roll back the driver or is it somehow locked into the massive catalyst control center download/install that comes w/the driver update?

I did uninstall Raptor which is some gaming program that comes w/CCC. There was a program called akami netsession (?) which I also uninstalled after researching a bit.

Any suggestions?

Hi maybe worth checking the system configuration msconfig and stopping some apps from starting?

You can probably nail this down to a few apps that really dont need to startup with windows.

I use sysinternals autoruns. This is what loads. Maybe skydrive needs to be fixed? I did notice some errors in event viewer.

Could be? Its worth unchecking all until you find what it is.


also maybe worth rolling back the display driver?

I'm pretty sure it's the AMD driver. Rolling back the driver (there are 2) caused it to black screen. Not sure how to get the old CCCenter for it.

EDIT: Installing the laptop's AMD driver seems to have solved the problem. Lesson learned. Thanks!
