This problem just started today. When I turn on the computer and login to my account, it takes longer time to load everything (in systray). Before it use to load everything one by one, but now it loads Black Ice and AVG, then it just does nothing for about a minute or so, then it loads the rest of the applications, but not Norton Anti Virus 2003. Norton Anti Virus 2003 takes another 1-2 minute to load and my Norton Internet Security 2003 (NIS 2003) just doesn't load at all. If I open NIS 2003 and hit options, I get a error saying that I don't have rights to it (even though I am the admin) Some other problems are that when I idle, the computer monitor does not hibernate anymore more (turn black to save power). When I use Task Manager and hit "End Process" to end a process, the computer makes a beep sound (I can end that process however). A beep sound also comes out when I use some other applications. Also, if I hit Start>Turn off Computer and if I don't either press one of the 3 options (randomly click the blank screen), it makes a beeping sound as well. I never get that beep sound doing those, the only time I do is when my computer freezes, safe mode, or pressing down on a key on the keyboard for a long period of time. Although if I want everything to load properly, I would have to log out of my account, then log back into my same account again, and NIS 2003 will turn on (in systray) properly as if it was my normal start up, but the beeping sound will still occur no matter what. If I were to open NIS 2003 now and hit options, I don't get the error anymore. Can anyone fix this? What's causing this? I do not have a restore point. Tried "Last Known good configuration" by press F8. I have a slow computer, but this has never happened to me before nor does it take this long to load everything. Here are my specifications:
I don't open malicious programs I am not positive about, only download from trusted sites. I did however download a new version of Windows Live Beta (WLM) and install it yesterday (and I have used WLM before), restarted my computer a couple of times after that, but the problem didn't show up. It showed up today as I got back home. Thanks in advanced.
