Looks like Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer. Though they are probably linked.
Was this a oncer, or a reoccurring event ? Tried a chkdsk ?




My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Do you have any files on your desktop, or just shortcuts? When was the last time you ran defrag on your boot drive? Have you done a full antivirus scan lately?

shutdown speed has improved, but start up still takes ages to get past the welcome screen.

and this

This application took longer than usual to start up, resulting in a performance degradation in the system startup process:

iw4mp.exe is the game Modern Warfare 2, you don't want that starting up at startup... check if you're got a stray shortcut for the game in the "all programs" > "startup" folder in the start menu.
