Everything had been running very smoothely until I installed a patch for Age of Empires 2. I restarted my computer and got an error on startup (any way I can find a log file that logs whatever that error may be) After getting the error I restarted again and noticed my startup time was a lot longer then it had been, about 30-40 seconds longer, in addition whenever I open up 'My Computer" for the first time it takes about 10-15 seconds for any of the drives to show up. After the first time it appears to load up normally.
I have absolutely no idea how to fix this, or even what the problem is. I immediately uninstalled Age of Empires 2, tried to system restore back to yesterday, ran Chkdsk, ran AVG anti-virus, ran spybot, ran ad-aware, and ran Trojan Guarder Gold. None of those things fixed the problem so I have no idea what to do next.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
