Hi, I have eliminated almost all the start up programs in this PC, There may be two items I left, I have removed software, removed spyware and tried everything I can think of. When this PC boots It is 10 minutes before i can do anything. I need some more ideas besides formatting the drive. Thanks

Hello Picky...

Is it only the startup that's slow or do applications also open more slowly than they should? Does the machine just seem very sluggish overall?

Sorry, I should have explained it more. It boots into windows just fine. You can start task manager, right click any where and get a response, but drag the cursor to the task bar and you have a hour glass that will last for 10 12 minutes. While waiting I have run MSCONFIG and other small utilities, but again drag the cursor to the task bar and there is the hour glass. I have closed everything, run malwarebytes, CC cleaner, spybot. I can't put my finger on the problem.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.

I have completed Three different malware scans, some several times after rebooting. The reports and logs I reviewed are clean of any malware, rootkits, virus. I have explored the eventviewer, closed all startup programs, explored all processes not needed and closed. In other words I have been through this system with a fine tooth comb and it is the cleanest I have seen in a long time.
