Hi, I've been having some major issues with my computer(Vista Home Basic OS) and its boot startup.

When I turn on my computer, it's fine until the moving green bar. It will just keep on going and going and going, and will NEVER STOP! I can easily start up in the diagnostic modes(safe modes and stuff). SOMTIMES I can get through the maving green bar. Startup repair doesn't see a problem, niether does AVG Free. I have lots of USB divices. My mouse and keyboard are USB divices too, so I can't remove all of them frop their ports. Windows defender also sees nothing. And my outdated and expired Norton Internet Security...well.... I have no clue, it keeps telling me it has an internal program error and to uninstall and reinstall itself. And all that crap. Anyway, I just wanna know what to do. Please reply ASAP. Thank You in advance.

Did you remove Norton before installing AVG?

If you're still getting Norton errors, download and run the Norton Removal Tool for your particular version of Norton. Google for "Norton Removal Tool" (without the quotes) and the version that you're using (ie 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, etc)

The problem occured BEFORE I got AVG Free. I got it because of the boot problem. So it has nothing to do with antivirus conflict, plus Norton's firewall is off.

Any more solutions. Remember the real problem, it's not just "some boot roblem."

Here, to the point:

I can easily start up in the diagnostic modes(safe modes and stuff). SOMTIMES I can get through the maving green bar. Startup repair doesn't see a problem. I have lots of USB devices.

Anyone have any explinations? I'll admit, I'm a little impatient, but I honestly find this boot problem a bit scary cnsidering nobody knows the problem.

Seeing how you have no problem in safe mode suggest it's possibly a driver. Did you turn off anything is msconfig by chance?I would unplug all unnecessary USB devices if you have that many.
When you're in safemode. go to the Device Manager, click on all of the +'s and look for yellow exclamation points or red X's. Also go to the Event Viewer and see what is displayed there

I don't see errors in my divices, here my divice manager is open, with the USB port divices shown, as an attachment.
And my event viewer shows soooooo much, it's hard to depict things. And all my sevices are "checked".

Plus, now AVG isn't working. It shows the following error when trying to reinstalll(because it won't work, I tried to reinstall it.)
It happened after I did system restore when my computer rebooted and didn't work.(System Restore somtimes will help me able to boot) Anyway, heres the only details that it will show:
Installer initialization failed due to following error:
Error: @AvgErrorCode_0x0253 %FILE% = "C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8"
@AvgErrorCode_0x0020


Now what can I do?

@AvgErrorCode_0x0020

This error happens a lot when you install AVG on a system already infected.

It happened when I tried using Norton. It said fix now so I was like, let's give it a shot! I did it, then it did what it did and restarted my computer. I couldn't get on(because of my boot problem.) and I turned off my computer. When I turned it back on, Vista launched startup repair. Startup repair just wanted to do system restore. It did system restore and rebooted my computer. I was able to make it through the startup. Now Malwarebytes and AVG Free won't work. Maybe Norton did something. I had unistalled AVG and Malwarebytes before that though. I'm not sure anymore. Anyway, its impossible for me to uninstall Malwarebytes, or even use it. I keep getting errors.

But that's still not my big problem, I still have the Boot problem. What good is a computer that won't start up? Want me to generate a Health report or something?

I think the problems getting worse! I can't even do fast reply on THIS WEBSITE! And I can't do any kind of submission buttons on the DELL Support website. Javascript commands do nothing apparently. I'm starting to become scared.

hmm..Maybe when you booting a computer, one or more .sys files taking very much time...Or you are infected with Trojan.Tdsserv or its family... If you can, download MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and clean Viruses..If nothing has detected show a .sys files, which booting in Normal Mode


But if you cannot connect to internet, try setup with latest definitions ON CD

I can't download it. I already have it, and I can't uninstall it, and same with my AVG Free. I can't download anything.

Heh... sorry. I wasn't paying attention that much. I'm stressed out, you know?

Alright, posted there.


Anyway. Back to the boot problem.
Once again, the BOOT gets to the moving green bar, and the green bar keeps going and going and going! Never stops.
Startup repair can't figure out whats wrong.
