Well there obviously is something wrong because by removing the unneeded start ups and dead entries the boot time should have speeded up, not slowed down. I don't honestly know what else to tell you.
Well it is faster than before I deleted those things, but I meant it has a slower boot time than before I got the virus. That could just be my mind playing tricks on me though. Unless anyone has anything to say, maybe I should mark this as a solved thread.
Once installed then open the program and click the Startups Tab
Go in and Remove the check marks from these listings:
Microsoft Default Manager
ok thanks for the warning about asc3 will uninstall now. as for the problem i would download a process monitor that prevents any process from running without you prior permission. obviously it memorises the safe ones that you tell it. good luck!
