Ok i was on the hijack forum and had some issues that were fixed. All but the slow startup and restart process. This has been going on for some time and i just cannot take it any longer. My computer specs are as follows:

Microsoft Windows XP
Media Center Edition
Version 2002
service pack 2

Hewlett packard pavilion
Pentium® 4 CPU 2.53GHz
2.52GHz , 512 MB of RAM

I also have DSL with Bellsouth and have a laptop set up with this computer so that i can access it also.

I have also have ran diskclean and defrag and have ran ccleaner and ran my spyware and just cannot figure what the heck is going on. When i got my problems fixed mike suggested that i come here and see if you all could help me. I sure hope so this is driving me insane.
