If this is a new/out of the box laptop you may have a lot of bloatware on the HDD.
1st suggestion is to download and run Autoruns from http://technet.micro...ernals/bb963902
1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Remove any entries that mention "File Not Found" by right-clicking the entry and select Delete.
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.
Then download and run TFC by OldTimer from http://www.geekstogo...ds&showfile=187
The computer should Auto-Boot on completion but if not you will need to do it manually.
AV programs I suggest include Avast (free version) http://www.avast.com...ivirus-download or MSE http://www.microsoft...ls/default.aspx only use one or the other and not both as it will lead to system slowdown or possible freezes/crashes due to the 2 programs fighting for system resources.
Hope this helps and let us know how it goes or if we can assist you further.

Some of my folders are locked. This is crazy because I only have one user profile set up and it's an administrator one (as far as I can tell). I can't unlock them. Here are a few examples:
C:\Users\Fletcher\Local Settings (Fletcher is my profile name)
C:\Users\Default User (I guess I don't really need to get in this but it bothers me that it's locked)
C:\Users\All Users\Application Data
It isn't a huge deal but do you know why this is happening and how I can unlock all folders -- I don't like that I'm restricted (even if it is a safety precaution).
Thanks so much! Fletcher

Unlocker - http://download.cnet...4-10493998.html
It can be un-installed after.
