Help!

It takes 30 minutes for my computer to boot up. Then everything runs as usual. I am a computer idiot. I am afraid to touch my computer now. Can anyone give me any suggestions? Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post!

Hi jasminajn,

I suggest you to download HijackThis at this link : http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
Extract the downloaded file under a temporary folder and execute HijackThis.exe.
Click the button Scan and the button Save Log.
Post the log file created.
Please, don't fix anything yet if you are not sure of what to fix.

So, log with administrator privilieges, run Hijackthis, click the Scan and check the following entries :

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = https://remoteplus.gs.com/http://re...moteplus.gs.com
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,Default_Search_URL = http://www.searchv.com/w/search.html
O16 - DPF: {0DC0F894-0000-0000-0000-000000000000} - http://www.bicyclebuys.com/flash/swflash.cab

Check the entries you didn't add yourself in the Trusted Zone :
O15 - Trusted Zone: mailhost.bhmsny.org

jasminajn, Welcome to TSG!!

First thing to do is make a folder on your hard drive, like My Documents\hjt. Move hijackthis.exe into that folder, don't run it from a temporary folder.

Get all of the critical security patches from Windows Update

I know this sounds strange but as a long shot, check to be sure you don't have any CDs in the drive. I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago to someone and it ended up that there was a game CD in the drive. Don't ask me why it mattered though but the PC booted fine after removing the CD.
