Toshiba Satellite slow start up.

Question

zachp

My toshiba is taking forever to boot up...I turn it on and it takes about 20 minutes before it actually does anything. Once it comes on it performs normally for about a hour and then will freeze up, turn it off and restart the process...does anyone have a clue what would cause this?

Startup programs and malware (spyware, virus, trojans, etc.) most likely.

First thing to do is get CCleaner or similar and clean out all the old temp files (even cleans those hidden IE files) from your computer.

Next, uninstall programs and features you don't use as many of them load things on startup even though you may not be actively using the program.

The first two steps can greatly speed up how long it takes to perform the subsequent malware scans.

Finally, get some software to remove the spyware/malware.

MajorGeeks forum is a good website for information about removing spyware/malware.

My sister had this same problem on a brand new system. She had made the mistake of installing Norton and McAffee and both were active at the same time. This seemed to bring the machine to its knees. I blew away the old system and re-installed from the original config disk. I then wiped the original version of mcaffee and installed norton. The system seems to work ok now, although it still takes a while to get booted and loaded up. Even brand new it is slower than what I would have expected.

I'll try the cleaner and see if it gets better...I deleted almost everything I don't use and I haven't installed anything recently. I'll check on the norton antivirus thing.

Mike I'll be back in MN on thursday...i'll give the above things a try and if I can't get it to work i'll give you a hollar, Thanks.

Zach

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
