I have been having a lot of problems with my computer with Windows Vista Home Basic. First, I had a virus called Vista Security 2012. I had this all cleaned up by microsft. Next, after Microsoft cleaned out the virus the computer has sat at the Dell startup screen for 4-5 minutes now it does this everytime it boots up. Next, after log in and everything all the icons are all big and some icons even move around after boot up. Last, right after log in I get a Windows Defender error the error is: Application failed to initalize: 0x80070006. The handle is invalid. This is a family members computer. They said they shut down sometimes by holding down the power button. I think that is a possible part of the problem. I now have the computer at my home.
