I have a Windows 7 Home Premium OS on a brand new ASUS (the G74Sx - Gaming series). For the first two months, the login was pretty much instantaneous.
Recently, It has become very erratic. When I turn it on, the login screen loads fairly quickly (10s). After I type in my password, it waits about 25s, then goes to welcome screen. After that, it waits 5 or so minutes. The a black screen for about 15 minutes. Finally, it will show the desktop with icons and everything. Once it is at the desktop, it may take anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes to fully load. If I click during this time, the system shows a window: Microsoft Windows - The application isn't responding.
If I wait, it will finally, completely load, and everything is smooth sailing from there.
Before you ask, yes, I have:
1. checked on Google
5. rollbacked updates
6. reinstalled updates
I don't want to to a complete wipe and reinstall because I have about 350 GB of software and reinstalling that it a pain. Anyone have any idea what is wrong?
