    Hope you guys can help me.

    I have a Toshiba Satelitte laptop and in the past few weeks it's taking about 6 minutes to boot up from the log in until all the stuff is loaded and ready to run. Also shutting down also takes 6 minutes ... sometimes longer.

    What could be wrong? I know it's a generalisation but if someone can point me in the right direction it'd help then I cn be more specific.

    Thanks :)
