Hi. On my new system, windows starts as usual, and when the desktop appears, my MS Office shortcut bar loads, but then the bottom task bar and start button freeze whilst something loads.
It happens for about 30 seconds and is pretty annoying, and has only started to happen when i installed a string of programs (like you do on a new OS install). I am in the process of installing some programs to see if they make any difference. After it finishes, a sting of new processes start, which may or may not be significant.
I have a pair of print screens of task manager before and just after with all the running processes, but i have no means to upload the JPEG.
Any help welcome,
