    It takes 25 seconds for my computer to go from past the XP initial logo and then the welcome screen. During the wait period the screen is all black. I have defragmented but I cannot do check disk because I get the error message saying "do you want to checkdisk later." Can someone help me fix this issue?

    Thank you for your reply.

    First try.
    Right click My Computer > Open
    Right click - Local disk - should be C:
    Click Properties.

    Tools > Error checking.
    Tick both boxes
    Click start.
    It will say it cannot scan, do you want it to scan at the next start up.
    Click Yes - restart your Pc


    It will scan the system at the next start up - let it scan - it will then boot to your desktop.
    ------
    Check and post
    TSG System Information Utility - found here.
    http://library.techguy.org/wiki/TSG_Valuable_links
    ------
    Download Security Check by screen317
    http://screen317.spywareinfoforum.org/
    Save it to your Desktop.

    Double click the install icon.
    A command Prompt window will open.
    Let it scan the Pc - press any key when asked.
    It should now open in Notepad - and will save a log called checkup.txt.
    Post the result of the scan here.

    Post a Hjt log - to see what is running on your system.
    Hijack this 2.04
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT use the AnalyseThis button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
    • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Also post the uninstall log from Hjt log
    Start HiJackThis.
    At the bottom right - Other Stuff
    Click on Config > Misc Tools.
    Click > Open Uninstall Manager.
    Click > Save List.
    Save the uninstall list file on your desktop.
    It will then open in Notepad.
    Click Edit > Select All > Edit > Copy-and-Paste the uninstall list in the reply box.

    Things improving a bit. The black screen only lasts about 10 seconds rather than 25 seconds.

    No Zone Alarm Security Suite, I have the freeware version

    McAfree is gone...all traces of it.

    Running at 3.2 GHz - so that is a Ok.

    When did you last update and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware?
    Run System File Checker.

    You will need the install Cd.

    The system file check utility ran and no errors were kicked out, so no problems with the file check utility.

    Adobe Reader 10.1.4 Adobe Reader out of Date!
    Download the latest version - uninstall the older version, install the new.
    Untick Free! McAfee Security Scan Plus - before downloading.

    Do not use the registry cleaner in Ccleaner - registry cleaners can cause more problems than they solve.
