After I restart, I saw it took about 5-10 min to load everything. After heavy googling and researching I was able to open my event viewer and see a good amount of errors. So I decided to turn off the DHCP client service by setting it to Manual and then rebooted.
Surprisingly enough, my computer booted extremely faster. No more than about 30 seconds. Then I try to restart the service manually and I end up with this
Error 1053: The service did not repond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
When I check the Event Viewer, this is what I find.
Dhcp 1004 error reads: The DHCP Client is shutting down. The following error occurred: A system call that should never fail has failed.
Mind you that last night this happened after I did a Spybot S&D and Ad-aware scan and I removed all of the problem files and then this issue began when I started using the computer this morning.
How can I fix this problem?
EDIT: Did a System Restore, I thought I turned it off as usual but didn't this time. Everything seems to be working fine and will proceed to doing the Spyware search with Spybot and Ad-aware. I'll give a further update.
