Posted 29 January 2006 - 05:45 AM

my winxp pro sp2 pc takes about 3 minutes before prompting me to click my username and enter my password. "Windows is starting up..." takes too long. this happens everytime i restart, reboot, or turn my pc on. and sometimes my CPU usage can go as high as 100% or as low as 0%, is this normal? am i infected? i have attached an HJT log so that you can analyze why my pc is acting weird. i think i am really infected with some virus.

Hello and welcome to the forum. While I can not say what is causing your startup problem, and it may not be malware, you do have some junk in your log that I suggest you remove. I first have to point out an issue that makes troubleshooting of any kind difficult. You are running two antivirus programs at the same time and the conflictions caused doing this make not only troubleshooting difficult, it makes you less safe than if you run one good antivirus program and maintain it properly. Before I can proceed, please choose one and uninstall they other. (they both has reputations of being good programs) Once you have done this, then update the one you kept, run a complete system scan and remove anything located. Make a note of the complete name and pathway of any items that could not be removed.

Post a new HJT log, let me know now about anything your av could not remove. Include as much information about any issues as you can, including any error messages "word for word". I will post instructions for continuing the cleanup as soon as possible after you post. If your issues are resolved and you no longer need this topic, please let me know so I can close it.

Thanks...pskelley
