Have you ever try startup manager to get a better way to deal with startup programs by loading them in sequence instead of in jam.
Maybe the following passage can be referential for you.
My boyfriend is having all kinds of problems with his computer.
Start up is really, really slow. he has hardly anything on the start up items [he has an anti-virus, and I thin realtek on start-up]. If he opens up my computer [or any other folder] it searches inside the the folder[ with the little flash-lite thingy]. But after it has been on for a while it's fine. Now just today we notice that it is making a beeping noise when he gets a warning message. The sound sounds like when you are trying to go into safe mode when you hit the f8 key.
he has ran all kinds of virus programs trying to figure out what is wrong.
What could be the problem here?
Oh he canplay music and stuff on the computer
