(this is what appens everytime i start up my pc )
the error message exact wording is

this show s up on a blue screen everytime i start up my pc


V3.07 <ESC=Boot menu>
<F1=Setup> <F10=System Recovery>

it takes a long time to go away ( like 5- 10 min) then
the usual black colored screen with the windows starting up show s up for a few second, but right after the computer look like doing a normal start
it s blackouts for like 1-5min. then the background with the wallpaper show s up after we log in the session but it freezes,( we only get to see the wallpaper
witout the desktop icons) for like1-5min and then the computer starts up programs and popups like it should do.
Ive already tried startup lite and the results were the same for the part after the wallpaper freeze

The PC is a HP invent
the system is
Microsoft windows XP media center edition version 2002

you can check the latest forum that Ive been threw at the link below

Myrti helped me do a system restore and she told me that my problems weren t really from a malware infection. the pc is slow, i can t install CDs, I can t really use USBs( it takes a long time to recognize usb port devices)

Thank you for your help
regards tf4ever
