Had some serious problems with Trojans, can see here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...=252670&hl=

Now since then, Windows is not right. Here are my issues.

1. Still will not boot properly - comes to the screen that ask how I want to start Windows.
2. Takes up to 5 minutes to shut down.
3. Lost administrator rights.
4. System doesn't "feel" right.

Thanks,
John

Try a "chkdsk /r" on your install using a Windows Vista Operating System Disk. Boot to the CD, choose the "Repair your computer" option on the "Install Windows" Screen. Choose The "Open a Command Prompt" option. type chkdsk c: /r and just wait. Re-boot and post back here if run into any problems!

If you are in XP...

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (space between k and /) and hit Enter.

Type Y in response to onscreen query and hit Enter.

Reboot the system, the command will execute.

After command has finished, system will boot into XP automatically.

Edit: Malware situations often leave system files damaged, hindering system operation. In some instances, a repair install of XP may cure this...in some instances, a clean install is the best alternative.

Thanks,
