I have this problem and have found it expressed on many web sites that windows 7 takes a lifetime to load. It takes my brand new microsoft Toshiba T135-s1312 which I bought at the microsoft online store about 15 minutes to fully load. Occasionaly a message appears that says windows is having problems loading. Although I have seen multipe postings regarding this problem, I have not encountered any solutions. I am runnign a virus and malware check and found 8 tracking cookies thus far. How do I know what junk to clear out that is not a tracking cookie. I think I got a computer that has a damaged windows software on it--which figures since I got the computer from microsoft afterthey misdelivered the one I should have received. Please advice me, a dummy when it comes to tech issues, and one that has not had a satisfying experience purchasing this computer from microsoft itself.
