I have been having some trouble with my laptop since I did a system restore about 2 weeks ago.
My system would take 5+ minutes for "Loading your personal Settings" -

So I dwnlded X-teq Setup and turned on verbose messages at startup to see what was happening.

What I see now is executing aswlndll.dll, and then it hangs on wlnotify.dll.

I don't know what to do now, but I can't even get to a desktop unless I hold down the shift key during the dll executions.

I have run several virus and adware scan progs and they all come up with nothing.

How can I fix this slow boot? Help!

I like to learn - If one restore point didn't work, how can another work better?

I do have another restore point I can use will I lose any new data by reverting back further?

Thanks!

you will have to pick a date BEFORE the problem started...pick one about 2 weeks before ...the most current will /can have the same problem your experiencing now ...thats why you have to try older ones..
you will not lose any data...but you will have to get any windows updates again for the time period you are going back...
