That's what my grandson calls it. He's got 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive in an Asus PC. System info is attached here as a .pdf file. 95% of his activity is Minecraft, but even before that comes into play, the OS is slow to load and if he should enter an erroneous password at the start, "slow" becomes "ten minutes" after entering the correct password. I have a hunch that msconfig is loading a whole bunch of unnecessary stuff. Although I wouldn't know what to disable, GeekSquad can probably help me on that. I'm just wondering if any of you can offer other thoughts on the matter.
