    Identify Processes Running Upon Login?


    Lately, and I'm not sure if I'm noticing it for the first time, after I login and access my desktop from the touch screen, I can't access any programs until after a few seconds (maybe 10-15). Is it possible there are background programs running that are interfering here? If so is there a way to identify what those are, besides task manager?

    I have Classic Shell installed on my laptop (Asus touch) because the Windows 8 interface is horrid, so I'm not sure if that's doing anything. I did also have rainmeter installed but I have that disabled. Hope this helps.
