  1. Hi

    My acer laptop has gone really slow for some reason (Haven't downloaded anything), when i go to the login screen (the one with guest and other profiles) the guest one works fine but when i login to the main profile it takes about a minute to load.

    Any one had any problems like this?

    My acer is about a year old and goes SO slow on that same screen. I on the other hand have downloaded alot. Not like a very large amount but a decent amount none the less. Sometimes it will take me ten minutes on that screen.

    You probably need to have Windows reloaded fresh

    Clear your hard drives. I have a friend who purchased a 5 year old Dell computer, downloaded a new copy of Windows, and when he starts it, it takes less than 10 seconds, literally, for the system to be ready to use. But it has nothing at all in the drives.

    Just give that a thougt.
