It is a new laptop.. I dont know what cause it to happen like this. But I have updated virus definitions from mcafee... It was working quite well before.... I dont believ in that I have malware or spyware... I have also updated .NET version 3... Do you think that there may be some conflict?

Thanks...

Hello,

Have you checked things like the msconfig to see what startup applications you have? Have you done things like PC Decrapifier to remove the added software from vendors? Personally i dislike McAffee. I have had nothing but issues with them missing viruses and malware. I always recommend people uninstall it and use AVG or Avast. Free alternatives which are much better. But that is a personal opinion.

I have not had any issues with .NET 3.0 running on my machine. So if there is a conflict it would have to be with something like McAffee. Have you checked your event viewer to see if there is any conflicts or errors in there? Could provide some info as well. Maybe a startup service keeps failing.

Cheers,
Mak

Since this computer belongs to my company, I dont want to make significant changes such as uninstalling Mcafee.. There should be a solution to this but how? Althgouh I log on with Admin account It seems that ıt could not recognize me as admin... Beside it gives a pup up warning window like " You can not make changes ATI Control center.. See Administar sthg like that"

I dont know where I have changed something... It may be related with my profile or access rights...

Usually, I go to the startup tab of msconfig.msc then disable the startup programs one by one (not the necessary ones though :)). I re-enable them back one by one and see where the problem starts.
