Slow response time when clicking on start


Recommended Posts

Slow response time when clicking on start. I saw a post where someone was saying it takes half a second to respond, well I have that beat, I just counted to 16 before mine would respond. sometimes a lot longer. But once it has been opened it responds instantly.This is on my laptop, desktop works fine. Is this something I can fix?
