My computer is having a very slow startup and its progressively getting worse. Also, my diskdrive will not read any disk. My possible internet connections will not pop up when I open the connections list, and mcafee virus scan is not operational. I posted my hijack this log, and no problems came up. I also ran multiple virus scans and spyware checks. I believe this could be a hardrive problem or a driver error. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Backup your data soon, because it sounds like your HD is going.

When you say your disk drive, do you mean your cd or dvd drive or ?

What operating system do you have and have you scanned for spyware and other malware recently?

Have you looked in your device manager to see if there are any driver problems?

My cd drive and dvd drive are the same drive. I am running windows xp, and I have scanned multiple times for spyware and malware. I checked my device manager and there are no problems with my drivers, although in the past I had a problem installing my ethernet driver.
