I recently has a problem with the stuck on 'starting windows' but solved it by reinstalling my anti-virus software. After this was solved , I encountered another problem in which after I use windows or any other application on my desktop it becomes unresponsive ( this includes the task bar and desktop that freezes).I have tried Ctrl + Alt + Del which doesn't solve the problem. In some instances , Windows catches up to my requests and things start to work again but then no application would open but the desktop and task bar is still responsive.For example , I tried to open Chrome but the browser doesn't appear , I have waited but still doesn't appear.However , I did check task manager and it does appear the exe file is running for any application. This problem doesn't happen in safe mode which I 'am on. ANy help would be great , Thanks.
