After PopUp Attack - Reboot Abnormally Slow

So after I noticed I was being invaded by popups, I posted in the Geeks to Go Spyware forum, to get help. See here: http://www.geekstogo...opic=98557&st=0

After the first or third time I was asked to reboot, I thought my system had been wiped out, because it was taking forever to load. All that would show up (after the quick initial Dell screen) would be a black screen with a gray flashing _ . This flashing thing would show for no less than 12 minutes, each time I reboot, couldnt get it into safe mode either, without the drawn out wait.

We got my system clean, but now I'm stuck with this silly unaceptable wait time, that is highly annoying. :)

Any help would be greatly, greatly, extremely appreciated. :tazz: Thanks!

EDIT: I think some evil found its way back into my system: http://www.geekstogo...topic=99155&hl=
