    Unusually long boot time


    I recently got a virus on my computer. My virus checker found and deleted it, but windows started displaying 'cannot find system32.exe' I did a search and found this is a common fault, and after following the advice here, . I managed to sort it! I also ran hijackthis and deleted any system32 files.

    Now everything's fine, apart from when I turn on my computer it stays about an extra 30 seconds on the screen with 'Windows XP Professional (and the green loading bar)

    This seems very unusual, and is very irritating. Does anyone know how to correct this? Is it a common problem?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes now that winter is approaching I need to start thinking about "long boots" .
    I take a size ten in a red gum boot.
