Apparent Windows Explorer issue
Posted on 2012-08-21
Am running Vista 64, on reboot it takes 15 - 20 minutes to load the desktop icons and to be usable. During this time the only process that shows is explorer.exe at about 25 - 30 % CPU usage. I have uninstalled norton, reinstalled norton, have done selective startup, did scan disk yesterday (took a total of about 14 hours), have removed driver for disconnected network printer, and probably about 20 other things.
Not sure where to go, I am relatively novice at windows stuff, just need to use the computer.
Once the 15 - 20 minutes go by and it finishes it's reboot, everything seems to work great.
