Specs: Windows 7, 2.933 GHz / 512 MB
Ok, I have to tell you Windows 7 was a big boost for my computer doing better performence then windows vista (DUHHHHHHHHH) and Windows xp (wow) for my old computer. But this morning when I booted up windows 7, IT WAS VEEEEEEEEEERY SLOW!!!!! The mouse was all skidy, don't get me wrong, it reacted to what i did instantly, but it was all skidy, and it took a looong time to boot up. At the log in screen it took a long time for that too. Then I logged in frustratedly and it took FOREVER for the desktop to load. Then after a few minutes of doing nothing hoping it would fix it self, it did. I heard the Windows disconnect sound and the connect sound (or MAYBE the connect error sound? not sure) and then Windows 7 worked like a charm. No skiddy mouse, no freezing..... What happened?

I suspect that for some reason it needed to do a lot of disk access at startup. Not quite sure why but it does seem to do it from time to time.

Check Task Manager to see if you have anything new running in the background. If not then it may have been a Windows update that was installed at shut down and just needed to complete its install. If you have a program you do not want, uninstall it. If you have a new program but do not want it to load with Windows at start up then go to msconfig to the Start up tab and uncheck that program and any you do not want at start (you only really need Microsoft and your antivirus at start up).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
