    I have 4 computers on a windows 2000 network w/ active directory. Recently when i reboot or shutdown/startup the pc's it takes 20 min or longer to boot up and get to a desktop. If I unplug the Network card it boots up right away. I have virus software running on everything and all my def's are up to date. What could it be? Please help!!!

    There might be a virus on your network causing this to happen.

    Try this on your PC's. Do this in order:

    1) Open Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> delete cookies, delete files (select off-line content), clear history. Then click ok and exit Internet Explorer.

    2) Read http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/index1.html then download and run SpyBot. Make sure to get the updates for SpyBot before you have it scan your computer. After you scan and remove anything SpyBot finds, make sure to click the Immunize button and OK and then click the Immunize button in the right pane.

    3) Update and run your Anti-Virus program (NAV or MacAfee), if you don't have an Anti-Virus program installed on your PC use one of the free ones here:



    4) Read http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ then download and install HiJackThis. Open up HiJackThis and click "Scan". After you do so click "Save Log" and save it to your desktop. Exit HiJackThis and open the log you created on your desktop and copy every thing in the log and post it here.
