f secure uses backweb to update...have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling fsecure?

what do you mean by switching off...like...turning all the way off..or just hibernating?

Before we proceed with the other issues, could you please visit the malware forum and get a clean billof heath there.. Follow the link in my signature and follow all instructions at the top.

After they clear you of malware (a main cause of the start up issue), then return here and we will tackle the rest
