Hi, I was wondering why my computer is starting up so slowly? I'm new to computers so please bear with me. My problems started when i got a virus and the only way i was able to get rid of it was to restore to factory settings :( So i had to re install everything and now my computer starts up soooooo slowly (5mins +) I tried ad aware, clean and tried msconfig and the only thing that helps is disable all in services but then i can't use the net? What are the services i need to have on? does anyone have a clue as to what might be the problem? Thanxs.
Kinda confusing to me but i'll give it a go! Will i loose everything should i back up all my files before i do this? I also noticed norton now scans 270 000 files instead of my usual 186 000 files weird hey???
Thanks guys u gave me alot of things to try out i'll give them a try before i reformat. i did go to microsoft and reinstalled all the updates and drivers but it still doesn't help. The computer works fine when it finally boots up i guess i'm just being picky!!! =)
