Hello, just like the topic states. Pretty new notebook with Vista 64 bit OS. Takes forever to load and the hard drive reads incessantly during this time. After it loads, will quiet for a time, then start reading again.

DDS and Root Repeal do not work with my OS.

Thank you for any and all help.

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
