Iv noticed it getting slower over the past three to four months but as I mainly use my iPhone it didn't matter. The model I have is a Toshiba Satelite. Now I can't get it past the apps screen
ok, can you tell me Ian if you can do these instructions please.

Click Start, type in MSCONFIG and press enter.

Click on the Startup Tab and click Disable All.

Click on the Services Tab and click "Hide All Microsoft Services"

Then click Disable All

Click ok, restart and let me know if it now functions correctly please.

Let me know the results please

I have just done that it is a lot better now thank you. What would have caused it?
It was a process that was having an issue on the computer Ian, which we resolved with my instructions.

It would have been caused by corruption within the service, it will be ok now.

If you need anything else at all, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you
