Dear EE members,

OS Spec: Win7 Home Premium 64 bit
CPU: Intel Core i3 M380 2.53 Mhz
Stand Alone PC

Previously, I have created a standard user account for my niece to use my computer.
Now, I have removed this account after she left via my admin account since yesterday.

The login process is quite slow compare to previous time. Now,It takes about 1 minute.
Last time, it takes about 10 seconds.

I have only one account which is admin account.

Any idea to solve this problem?

    Do you have drivers installed on the deleted user's account; eventviewer can help to find out this.
    Update the drivers;

    Is it slower now at the Starting Windows screen or when it is loading your desktop?
