Feel lucky it is loading programs. If it weren't, you'd just have an expensive electrical box doing nothing. Smiley

Not trying to take the mickey here, but would you care to leave some more information? We don't have the forum rules for nothing. How do you think we'll be able to help you?

Having discussed this with Cactus, please download and install Hijack This 1.99. Install it to its own folder. Run it, but do not, repeat, do not fix anything. Save the log, then post it here for all to see. Cactus will then check your system.

Hi Simple Simon

It may well be loading programs, unwanted programs or just programs that are not needed at startup.

If you would please download and install:  HiJackThis 1.99 .

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents,as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Then doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Do A System Scan And Save Log". Make sure all Windows and Browsers are closed.
When the scan is finished, best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackthis.

***DO NOT TRY TO FIX ANYTHING, MAJOR DAMAGE CAN BE DONE TO YOUR SYSTEM IF THIS TOOL IS USED INCORRECTLY, PLEASE WAIT FOR OUR MODERATORS TO GIVE YOU INSTRUCTIONS***


Create a New Topic in Security & Viruses Forum and Copy/Paste the info from your saved Hijackthis log file into your new topic.

With this information we will be able to see what is loading at startup, we can also eliminate unnecessary programs and hopefully get you booting faster.
