My 3 year old laptop just had a major crisis over some spyware. I couldn't anything so I re-imaged the C partition (my primary partition) with an image file created by Ghost 9. I used the Sysmantec rescue disc to retore the image. Eventhough the system is up and running, there exists a few problem

1) Extremely startup time!!! Before re-image, the computer started up with 10 different services on the right hand side of the task bar and it only stayed at the welcome screen for 3 secs. Now, the only thing that runs is Windows, and it takes like 2 mins to get over the boot screen. I'm pretty sure it's not the spyware cuz the image i used contained only windows and essential drivers

2) Firewall/ Internet Connection Sharing Service (ICS) doesn't start up automatically, even though the Services Administrative tool says tis

Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) Started Automatic Local System

Apparently, this causes me to manually turn on Windows firewall at start up. In addition, 3-rd party firewall such as comodo cannot be turned on at all (well, I can run the program, but none of the "monitor" can be turned on).

These problems are beyond my ability to fix. So I appreciate a good solution very much

It sounds to me like there was some corruption in the imaging process. Two things you could try are:

1. Try restoring the image again.
2. Do a repair install of Windows.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

After reloading the image, if you still have the same problem, can you create a new 'test' user account and see if the comp loads slowly? I've had a problem with a corrupted user account file and needed to make a new one. It was a quick resolution. Might be worth a shot.

If it loads fine, then you could move your stuff over to your new account. Presuming you are using XP:

If you're still running into probs, like Budapest said, you might want to reinstall the OS to make sure all the system files are free of corruption.

A couple of thoughts here:
1) Could the image have been made while there was some malware hidden on the system? If so, this could be the malware rearing it's ugly head again.
2) Once the malware is ruled out, you could try a repair of Windows to help with the delays that you're experiencing.
