Just so you know, this is what I run:
Zone Alarm firewall
Spybot (running in background)
All on XP Pro
My PC takes ages to get going. This is what happens...
I turn the PC on. I log in and the desktop appears. Then the computer freezes for about 10 to 20 minutes. Then it finally works.
The internet is a little slow at loading up no matter what browser I use, and games (EVE, WOW, etc.) and games lag for a second, although this happens regularly every 3 or 4 minutes, and this never happened before with my online gaming.
I have run all the above programs after updating them, as well as running Kaspersky, CCleaner and ComboFix...and my computer still has the same problem.
If anyone has any idea as to what is happening and if something can be done, I'd be very grateful
