Apologies, appdata is a hidden folder, it has to be changed to unhidden to see it. You got it so no problem....
If you are still having start up problems lets do a clean boot, see if that helps. Follow these instructions:
Click Start, click Run, type msconfig
and then click OK.
The System Configuration Utility dialog box is displayed.
We now need to configure selective startup options:
- In the System Configuration Utility dialog box, click the General tab, and then click Selective Startup.
- Click to clear the Process SYSTEM.INI File check box.
- Click to clear the Process WIN.INI File check box.
- Click to clear the Load Startup Items check box. Verify that Load System Services and Use Original BOOT.INI are checked.
- Click the Services tab.
- Click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box.
- Click Disable All, and then click OK. this will disable none MS services.
- When you are prompted, click Restart to restart the computer.
When you receive the following message, click to select the Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows start check box, and then click OK.
If the clean boot fixes the issue do the following:
Repeat as above, ensure all MS services are hidden, enable half of the non MS services then re-boot. If the issue does not return do exactly the same again, this time only enable the bottom half of non MS services.
If the issue returns we know the issue is in the bottom half, so you now repeat again but only enable half of the bottom half. Keep doing that until you isolate the rogue sevice.
Let me know how you get on, I know it is a laborious task but it will locate the issue. Obviously if the issue happens with the initial clean boot we`ll have to think again....
Off to bed now, 12:30 am local time for me....
