My pc has suddenly become very slow booting up (3-4 minutes) It takes ages to get past the Windows XP screen. Just as its gets past that screen , the windows melody play, but is very broken up.
Once booted up (no error messages), I can use the internet okay. However, if I try and play any video or music in Windows Media Player, it is very slow and breaks up.
Just before this started happening I did encounter a virus, which has corrupted my start menu (most of the programs have dissapered off the menu).
However I have ran various Virus checkers and none have resolved either issue. I have posted 2 threads which the Admins have been helping me with, but have now suggested its performance rather than virus related.
The results are included in these posts re-virus checking
