Question about Toshiba Satellite L755-S5158 Laptop
Every time I shut my computer down or restart it, it takes forever to load and will sometimes just stay on the welcome page with the spinning circle which will sometimes freeze. Why does it do this?

There are SO Many possible factors causing slowdowns.
Start with checking the free space on your hard drive. You need some wiggle room to navigate and 25% free is recommended.
Defragment your hard drive. (I like the free Defraggler software better than Windows on feature.) this will take some time so run it overnight.
You may have background programs running. You do not need this--they will kick in when needed, and really slow you down.
For WIN 7 & Vista click Start and type in <msconfig> without the hentrax to bring up the System configuration window.
Click on Startup and uncheck everything except your antivirus (and something like SKYPE if you want it to kick in when you boot up). Apply, OK and Reboot. Check the box on the little window that appears i order to make it gone.
See if your fans are clogged with dust. It is very important to stick a pencil or something between the blades when spraying canned air to keep them from spinning.
Doing some or all of these should give you lightning speed! Hope this helps.
