So this is a bit of a tricky one for me. Recently I've noticed that when I launch any application whatsoever, there is about a 15 second delay before the program actually starts loading. It could be a coincidence but I feel that it started happening around the last windows update. I haven't done much troubleshooting about it as I'm not really sure where to start. The only thing I have really tried is disabling ALL non essential programs from startup and done a fresh reboot to see whether there was a clear third party program installed that was causing it. Oh, I also double checked all my bios settings to make sure my RAM speeds and everything were correct. Anyone know where I should start looking?
