  1. hi guys. my system is hanging alot and just wont get out of the loading state after i log in. it passes the blue welcome screen and SLOWLY shows my desktop which, after more loading, ends up becoming non responsive (gets the gray overlay to show it). nothing responds.

    safemode boots perfectly fine (im on it now). not the slightest slow down. ive removed all my usual startup applications but still get the problem. virus scan is nearly complete but no virus's in sight. (microsoft security essentials).

    uploader is failing me so here is the hijackthis log:

    NOTE: i removed the entries for internet explorers home page,etc etc as they contained URL's (i cant post urls.). they where all safe - all default microsoft website links.

    In order for us to help you I suggest you go to the Virus and Malware removal forum, read and follow the steps in the UPDATED 8 Step sticky and then post the required three logs in that forum.

    Hijack logs, etc. are read in the Windows OS forum but in V&M. Good luck!
