Hi, Stevie.


I hope you are having a nice weekend.


Some work for you, when you are back. :)


Determine what is causing the problem

  • Start up the computer and in the search box on the taskbar, type msconfig and select System Configuration from the results.
  • On the Services tab of System Configuration, select Hide all Microsoft services, and then select Disable all.
  • On the Startup tab of System Configuration, select Open Task Manager.
  • Under Startup in Task Manager, for each startup item, select the item and then select Disable.
  • Close Task Manager.
  • On the Services tab of System Configuration, check the upper half of the unchecked entries and restart the computer.
    • If the problem reappears, uncheck one entry and restart the computer. Check if the slowness goes away. Repeat this as necessary.
    • If the problem does not reappear, check one more entry from the unchecked ones, and restart the computer. Check if the slowness returns. Repeat this as necessary.
  • In your next reply, list the names of the service(s) causing the issue when enabled.
