I have been having an issue that seems to be getting worst, sometimes when windows 7 boots it gets to the desktop and slows to a standstill, the mouse works fine but i am unable to open anything, if i ctrl atl del after a few mins (if i wait that long before hitting reset) it will take me to the task manager but so slow I can't do anything. event viewer shows sod all apart from logging the power issue that comes with hitting reset. this used to happen now and again but it seems to be a daily issue now. wondering what i can do before going for a reinstall of windows to see if it nips it in the bud.
disabling startup items would make this a very long winded operation due to it being intermittent.
