I have a laptop, with 8GB of RAM and a Samsung 830 SSD with about 2/5th of free space out of its 256GB. Win7 64b. Laptop is a Toshiba T130.
In the other day I noticed that it took a long time to load a program, for example the python interpreter at the time the computer didn't have access to the home network.
In both cases the computer boots quickly. About 40 seconds.
Without internet opening the python interpreter, or notepad2.exe, or any program individually takes around 10 seconds. With internet connection (through WiFi) opening the same programs takes about 2 seconds. In both cases, it becomes SSD-instant-quick to open a program from a cold boot.
- I don't have any network mapped drives.
- I've tried with AV off (Avast antivirus) and same effect.
- I've installed all MS updates.
- I've run the Samsung SSD magician to "optimise" SSD and that didn't help.
I've googled and have found nothing of help. What could I do to determine & fix this issue?
