Hello, I have been recently been experiencing problems when loading into my computer, I type the password, and about 6 times out of 10 the computer will "hang" at the "Loading your Personal Settings" stage of the login.
This causes me to have to restart (by pressing the button) and try again, often taking multiple tries just to log onto the computer.
Further, sometimes when it has loaded windows and successfully logged on, it will not load any applications when asked to do so (e.g. Itunes, Internet, Word etc.) or it will delay about 5minutes until it will load them up.

I am assuming there is something wrong with my computer (cant think what, I have scanned for spyware and viruses...although they dont always help).
Someone told me to change the login menus to not use the "Welcome Screen" but this had no effect.

Thanks in advance for any help given :)

Perform a virus scan and a spyware scan. Next, run Disk Defragmenter on your system drive (typically C: ). If this doesn't help, ensure that you have installed all the latest drivers for your motherboard, graphics card and sound card. If this doesn't help, consider a format and reinstall of windows.

Its been happening since I installed Windows (I had to re install because it was playing up). If I was to do that again would the problem be solved?

Somehow I doubt this is a hardware fault, though I'm not ruling it out. I'd suggest you try the steps I had mentioned. If they don't help, try a reinstall and load the proper drivers.
