I tried disableing all but the antivirus but still no improvements.
Let me describe it better. After I click on the user icon, it goes to the next screen, the one with the "Welcome" on one half and the user picture/name/"loading personal settings" on the other, and just sits there. After about a minute, it shows my background picture, but none of the icons on the desktop, or any other part of windows.
Also, when i open up the task manager while i'm waiting for something to happen, there are about 30 or so processes running. Most of them have "svc" somewhere in their name.
