I recently had several virus' and eventually had to reformat and reinstall my Windows XP Home.
Well, all went well. When I am "in" everything works great, programs open up fine, accessing the internet is fine, downloading no problems.
My problem is when I turn on my computer, from the Windows loading screen, it takes a while to load up.
About every other time, after waiting for about 1 minute, it will freeze up. I have to hit the reset button before it will go on. (sometimes, I have to repeat this process one more time)
Also, when I try and shut it down, it takes, again, several minutes to shut down. And also, it sometimes will not shut down all the way. It will take the shortcuts off the desktop, but leave the background there.
I then, after waiting, will have to shut it off by the power switch.
Any one know what is happening here? I could sure use the help.
