Windows 7 - Applications taking very long to start up
Recently I've encountered a strange problem; it's not reproducible but happens from time to time.
When I attempt to open an application (be it opening a PDF (Adobe Reader), or firing up Chrome), the mouse shows the spinning icon beside the pointer, but the application does not start up. This can take up to a minute before the application fires up.
When I check the Task Manager for my application, I see that the appliation starts, but only takes up 100kb of memory, and stays that way for a while before increasing, and that's when the application loads.
