After first switching on my pc,it takes a 7 or 8 minutes before I'm able to go files,folders etc.A pal advised removing shortcuts from the desktop but it still waits for the same time (an eggtimer sign keeps appearing-can anyone help?

Removing shortcuts from the desktop won't do anything. He may have meant shortcuts from the Startup folder.

You need to run msconfig and see what is loading at startup and untick the ones you don't need click here

click here should help you.
