    Hi,

    I am using windows 7 professional. Day before yesterday I was had some problems with my google chrome so I uninstalled it and tried to re-install through internet expolrer but I was unable to install it, after trying for an hour I finally installed chrome. The next day when I started my computer, after everything( I mean boot-up and all) the desktop screen froze and stayed that way for 20-30 minutes and there was a message coming up that internet explorer is not responding, but after the 30 minutes wait everything goes away and my pc works properly. Every time I switch on my pc I have to keep waiting for these 30 minutes. Please help!!!

    As soon as you switch on the PC start tapping the F8 key until a menu appears, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to select Safe Mode, then hit the Enter key, tell me how long that then takes to complete the boot up process.

    its not the boot-up that is causing the problem

    As part of the diagnosis I wanted you to try in Safe Mode to see if you still have the long wait before everything is working.
