Question about Toshiba Satellite A300-0CF035 Notebook
This is a brand new laptop. I installed AVG 8.5 free version, spyware doctor, msn messenger, mozilla, limewire and a couple of other programs but didnt do anything really other than that, 2 days later, my laptop when restarted, takes about 3 minutes to load, in other words, All I see is the please wait. It eventually takes me to the desktop but about 3 minutes later. This is a brand new laptop, it shouldnt take this long. What could it be?
See helpful links here, here, and consider running startup lite from here.
Possibly helpful forums here, here, and a useful tool to track the anomalies here.
Vista is more ram dependent than xp, and you need more than the minimum recommended dose to feel zippy, so you may have to consider an upgrade of your ram, depending.
Also consider scanning for malware, according to these protocols....There are other AV that are less resource heavy, such as Eset's NOD and possibly Avira free, and you may have better luck with a different security config. (see tests here.)
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
