I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop that is probably about 3 1/2 years old. My computer is terribly slow. I played around on my own at one point and some free virus protection said it removed a virus. Also, every once in a while I get an "intrusion" blocked by it. I don't know what information can help you so I will try to give what I know.
When I start up, I get:
Retrieval of THotkey failed
Error code 0x00031402, 0x00000002
The computer takes a very long time to start up. I can do some things but usually when IE opens it slows down, and, if I try to download anything, problems get worse. I have no disc drive as it broke down a couple weeks ago. I am tempted to buy a new computer as this one is already old but I would like to save it and hopefully fix it if possible. Also, I am worried that if I get a new one, that I won't be able to transfer or save my photos and documents without the disc drive working.
Thanks for any help you can provide,
