For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.
A continual hourglass means there's some other program or process running in the background
using up the computer resources. When Windows starts, the only thing that needs to be running is Windows.
Try this: hold down the Windows logo key (just to the left of the spacebar) and press R.
The Run box will open.
In the text area type: msconfig and click OK.
In the System Configuration window click the Startup tab at the top.
Click Disable All and then Apply.
Click the Services tab and put a checkmark in the Hide all Microsoft Services box.
Click Disable All >>Apply>>OK
and restart the computer and let me know the result please.
