Ok, I had a problem about 3 months ago with the google virus. Due to certain circumstances I was not able to follow up on the process after it was removed. I am sorry for this. At the moment though I believe my is infected or something because after like 3 minutes of not doing something on the computer I am not able to do anything and the computer must be restarted to allow functionality. Also upon start up every other time the computer says the disk is dirty. Help

Hello as this can be many things .. here's an item to look thru and let's try a quick scan.
What is your Operating System and Antivirus?

Slow Computer/browser? Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware
Next run MBAM (MalwareBytes):

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
Download Link 1
Download Link 2MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Also upon start up every other time the computer says the disk is dirty. Help

Volumes with file system errors are known as "dirty volumes" and you have to run Chkdsk on the volume to repair the errors. The dirty flag on a NTFS volume usually means that the file system is in an inconsistent state due to:
  • The volume is online and has outstanding changes.
  • Changes were made to the volume and the computer was shut down before the changes were committed to the disk (crash).
  • Corruption was detected on the volume.
  • Power loss during a read-right operation on that particular drive.
Autochk runs the repair process at startup if volumes are flagged as dirty after the file system detects an error on the volume. When booting your computer, autochk.exe (a version of Chkdsk that runs only before the machine starts) is called by the Kernel to scan all volumes to check if the volume dirty bit is set. If the dirty bit is set, autochk performs an immediate chkdsk /f on that volume, verifies file system integrity and attempts to fix any problems with the volume.

When the computer is restarted, Chkdsk runs at startup to verify the consistency of the volume. You must run chkdsk on a dirty volume before you can defragment it. For more detailed information, read:
Also see Check Disk - Disk Checking Runs Upon Boot and MS Article ID: 316506: Chkdsk Runs Each Time That You Start Your Computer

This issue can occur if the System registry hive or the Software registry hive is damaged, or if both of the following conditions are true:
You use a Hewlett Packard (HP) ScanJet 5100c scanner with the HP driver.
You have not updated the scanner driver to the Windows XP version that is available from Hewlett Packard.

Hello, this looks clean. I think it would be better if you ask agin in the XP forum as there are some logs like Event viewer y=they can review and find what's going on,
