XP boot up.


Recommended Posts

It's probably XP's loader, I've seen it do that sometimes. If it's a long white progress bar that scrolls from left to right then it's the same thing you'd see if you woke the computer from Hibernation. I'm not sure why, but XP starts loading that way sometimes when booting up. I've never seen it cause any problems though :P .

edit: Here's a picture of what I'm referring to looks like: http://teamtutorials.com/wp-content/upload...and-vista-1.jpg

Ok. Thanks.

Now another thing. This just started today when I got on the computer, after I log in to my account and all my things are loading, it takes a really long time to load. I get to the desktop quick enough but it takes really long to load and can't click on the task bar icons or task bar at all, can't click on the desktop icons either since it dosen't do anything. The widget that's part of the ACER system doesn't come up at all, I would just restart the computer after waiting some 20 min. Ran a MBAM and it came back clean, updated some other of my things, only after I had unplugged my ethernet cable and restarted would it actually finish loading my things and here I am.

Not sure what's going on, might be COMODO? It's given me some problems a few times that quickly got resolved.

I think I might run a HJT just in case.

Well if you do think it is Malware related please follow the directions below. Thanks.

Scan and post logs - read note at bottom in green

If you're having Malware related issues with your computer that you're unable to resolve.

  1. Please read and follow the instructions provided here: I'm infected - What do I do now?
  2. If needed please post your logs in a NEW topic here: Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs
  3. When posting logs please do not use any Quote, Code, or other tags. Please copy/paste directly into your post and do not attach files unless requested.
  • Please do not post any logs in the General forum. We do not work on any logs posted in the General forum.
  • Please do not install any software or use any removal/scanning tool except for those you're requested to run by the Helper that will assist you.
  • Using these other tools often makes the cleanup task more difficult and time consuming.
  • If you have already submitted for assistance at one of the other support sites on the Internet then you should not post a new log here, you should stay working with the Helper from that site until the issue is resolved.
  • Do not assume you're clean because you don't see something in the logs. Please wait until the person assisting you provides feedback.
  • There are often many others that require asistance as well, so please be patient. If no one has responded within 48 hours then please go ahead and post a request for review
  • NOTE: If for some reason you're unable to run some or any of the tools in the first link, then skip that step and move on to the next one. If you can't even run HijackThis, then just proceed and post a NEW topic as shown in the second link describing your issues and someone will assist you as soon as they can.

Ok, managed to start up normally today. Did a lot of AV scans and everything came back clean. Before shutting down yesterday, I made a few changes to my Comodo firewall and some other things.

I was wondering about this as well. I used to have about 60 processes running when I would check my task manager and now I get only get about 55 or less. Is that normal?
