    PC totally crippled for first 10 mins.

    Hi all,

    First post!

    FULL CPU & RAM usage for first 10 mins after logging on/signing into desktop.

    I simply cannot use my machine for those first 10 mins.

    I would like to problem solve this and find the source of the resource hogging.

    Windows 8.1 Pro
    emet 5.2
    bitdefender 2016

    C2D - Cpu
    4gb ram.

    I will be very grateful for any help and assistance members would be willing to provide mewith this. It is absolutely infuriating to have to wait 10 mins, till my machine can become usable.

    Thanks in advance.

    First thing - try a clean boot following the steps in this tutorial Troubleshoot Problem with Clean Boot in Windows 8

    if you do several boots with just one start-up program set to start it should at least let you know the cause of the delay
