    I posted this in the windows vista section but was told to also post it here to see if it is virus related...

    Thanks to anyone reading this and I hope someone can help,

    I usually do not turn off my laptop, I just close it and let it hibernate. Yesterday I was trying to log on to a different internet connection than usual and it wasn't working so I turned my computer off and booted it back up and that is when the problem started. I have got my computer to the point where I can start it normally and get to my desktop and everything loads fine, then about a minute after loading everything freezes. When I click on something my cursor just changes to the "loading" one and I can't click on anything else, then after about another minute my computer just gets covered by like a see through white screen and is unresponsive. If I try to ctrl-alt-delete before this screen comes up then it just takes me to a black screen with just my cursor.

    I can load my computer in safe mode just fine and that is what I am on now. I ran spybot and it deleted a couple minor things that didn't affect anything and malwarebytes found nothing. I did a system restore back to 10/2 and it didn't help anything. I've also tried disabling startup programs, which seemed to let my computer work for a couple minutes longer but it still froze in the end.

    Any suggestions?
