It could be an operating system problem for the login screen to take ages to load up, but have you updated and scanned for viruses once you have slowly logged on??

Also, make sure you have scanned for ad aware

You may need to scan your system for malware, spyware and adware there are some thiings out there that do strange things to systems. Try using one of these or both.

Hi
As others have mentioned you may try to installing Anti-spyware softwares. I would suggest one more SpyBot. Before doing all of these, try to boot to safemode, and disabled all the unnecessary and suspicious programs running at the startup.
start->run->msconfig then click on startup tab

Always use a firewal if the computer is going to be on internet.

Update the anti-virus software and do a complete system scan. Since the anti-virus software is crashing, it looks like your computer might be infected with some kinda virus.
