I am having trouble with my Minecraft launcher. About a month ago every time I open Minecraft, it takes a while to open and if it does it freezes the program and slows the computer down a bit and takes ages to close.If it doesn't open it will still slow computer down then about 5minutes later a Java icon will appear on the task bar, you can't open it but if you scroll over it it says "Minecraft Launcher" but it does nothing.
I had got it working slightly but using a different version of launcher and it starts up fine with that but I want to use texture packs now and that launcher doesn't like that and now it fails to load.
I have reinstalled Minecraft (Deleted .minecraft and redownloaded .exe) updated Java twice and tried to use other launchers but now it opens up to a black screen, slows everything down and yeah ...
I am thinking of restoring my laptop to factory settings if I can't find a solution so If anyone could help that would be great. Also if anyone could tell me 'how' to restore my laptop that would also be awesome
