I am having a problem when I log off It keeps poping up the end program window that says archival agent.now you can choose to end now and it does ,but just wondering why it keeps doing this.Also when I log on there is a black page that opens really fast then goes away.I have never been able to read it fast enough so not sure what it says,But I do know it does have the word windows with the / .To me it looks like the page itself is just all black.I have never had anyproblems with this computer untill I upgraded my Mcfee to the most recent :whistling: then It ran so slow I couldn't even get around on the net.So had to go in and shut some things off so I could use it.. :blink: ..I am running windows XP and IE.hopefully sombody will understand what I am saying :help:

Is this "archival agent" part of any program...like McAfee? It may be a normal function of McAfee, so you'll have to just live with it. If it is, go into its setup function and see if you can tick it off.

Any difference in shut down mode? I suppose that I am biased, but any program that does many things poorly, rather than one thing well, is not worth the headaches. Therefore, I suggest one good anti-viral prog, one good malware prog, one good etc.... Using one prog that tries to do many functions seems to use up tons of resources. ..the big named software progs often fall victim to heavy resource usage.

Suggest: AVG + Spybot S&D + Spyware Balster + Windows Defender + your choice...

On reboot, if you see the black DOS page, hit the PAUSE key, above the Page Up key...that should freeze it to read...then hit enter to proceed.
