A friend has asked me to look at his laptop (Toshiba L300 running Windows 7) as it is running very slow.
The issue I am seeing is that when you turn on the laptop it is taking a considerable amount of time to startup and login. This time is in excess of 20-30 minutes. The disk activity light on the laptop is continuous.
I cant work out if it is a hardware issue, software or a virus, but would really appreciate any advice or tips on how to check the system.
