    Windows 7 taking forever to load 16th Jul 17 at 3:39 PM

    For a week or so now when i turn the PC on it gets caught up at this screen. Not all the time but often. This morning after probably about 3-5 minutes at this screen i went downstairs & had a coffee, came back upstairs once i'd done that & it had finally opened up Windows 7.

    I've not installed anything new that i can think of. I've ran SuperAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes Anti Malware, MS SE. Nothing found.

    Well i ran Acronis last night to back up the C drive. The C is my Samsung SSD. There's not a great deal on there i think but there is stuff. Most of my files are on a 2TB HDD which has been partitioned off into 2 drives.

    And Windows 10 is not an option. Well it is, but i don't want it.

    Event logs and boot logs are two completely different things.
    But maybe you are new to this

    The event log viewer allows you to view all events, it is just a plug in, I guess you do not know how to use it.
    Thanks, don't you just hate people with sigs !
