    Windows 8 Loads slow into desktop from Metro UI


    Hey there,

    I have a Toshiba Laptop with a Core i3 2.27 GHz 4GB DDR3 Dual Channel Memory and 500GB hard drive. Although this is a problem with both my laptop and desktop, desktop specs are in the specs section. When I boot up windows and then click Desktop in the Metro UI it loads very slowly. I have very minimal programs starting up with windows. I will post a screen shot below of what is starting up with windows boot on my laptop, and post the screen shot of my desktop when I get home. I believe that I have just what I should have booting. There is 2 Intel items that I left booting and some item names JJ, I am unsure if that is my user account or if that is some kind of spyware. Virus scans come back clean, I've done the boot time scan scanned the hard drive in my laptop from my desktop computer as well. Any would be great.

    Did you try refreshing your PC? If not then give it a Try.

Boot time is reasonable, but the first apps to load take far too long (up to 90"), and occasionally do not respond. Once the system has been 'up' a while, apps load OK. Multitasking is sluggish (with a high quality I7 processor). The prime suspects, as deduced via multiple event viewer errors,...
