Since a few days ago sometimes when i load up windows, once it has finished and im looking at the desktop my computer connects to the internet then nothing responds. It doesnt happen if im not connected but i dont think its a virus/adware/spyware because i have done the scans. This is the third time ive had this problem but in the past i just did system restore but this time i didnt have any available restore points. When i say "nothing responds" i dont mean it is frozen. I can move the mouse around and double click things but the cursor does the loading thing then nothing happens. The strangest thing is that i can open folders and look at pictures but nothing else. Anything that was already open will work aswell so i find myself getting all my programs open then connecting to the internet.

After about 5-10 minutes any of the programs i have tried to open, open all at once making my computer lag.

Plz help :tazz:

Sorry for the delay in responding to your problem..

For starters, have you tried booting from the XP cd and running the Recovery Console in irder to do a repair on XP??

I'm lazy, I would do an SFC (System File Check) before booting into the Recovery Console.
Start > Run > cmd
sfc /scannow
You will need your XP disk.

sfc - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.

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 a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
