Well I have a Toshiba laptop, windows XP SP1. I start my computer, and then I am on the log-in screen. I click my user name, put in my password, and press enter. Here is where the problem starts. My name goes to the middle, and then takes a minute to load it to the desktop, after that it goes to the desktop, but It only displays the picture of my desktop backround for another minute. After that the Icons load, but the icons on the bottom right(I think this is called the quick launch taskbar) take another minute to load. Finally it finishes to load. It takes more than 3 minutes to load it all the way. The usual speed is suppose to be 45 seconds to a minute (exception to a new computer or full restored compter which is suppose to take 10 seconds or less to load), but mine is very slow. I really don't have a clue about what caused this problem. I have not instelled anything in the past days. This is crazy. I really need help. Please reply soon. By the way, my IE is still Hi-jacked by res://, and keeps changing to another res:// address constantly. Please reply soon.

Whens the last time you defraged your harddrive?

Well, since you've indicated that you know you've got malware on your system, let's get that cleared up first- those nasties can cause such slowdowns.

I'm moving this to our Security forum now. Could you please download and run HijackThis and post your log for us to review. Read some of the threads in Security to find out how to properly configure and run HJT.

Ok, below is a fresh log. Yeah, I want that problem removed first, it is crazy. I am going crazy as well. By the way, the hompage (res://) keeps changing to a different one. One more think, I have another problem. I have to type in www before the website name and before .com . Usually I just type in the website name.com (EX: yahoo.com <<<< no www.). Please help me fix the problems. One last thing also. My problem got worse. Now it loads to my desktop, shows the backround picture, and now takes 6 MINUTES TO LOAD!!!!! This is crazy.

Click here to download and install Registrar Lite. Install, run, copy and paste this line to reglite's address bar:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\\AppInit_DLLs

and hit the "go" tab. Find: "Appinit_Dlls" value on the right side panel, DoubleClick, copy and post here the information in the 'Value' field.

Click here or here to download FindnFix.exe (2K/XP only!) by freeatlast. Double-click on the FINDnFIX.exe and it will install a folder called FINDnFIX on your system. Go to that folder and double-click on !LOG!.bat. The program takes a few minutes to collect the necessary information. When done post the contents of Log.txt here.

There is no such thing called AppInit_DLLs on there. By the way, I use ad-aware and scan. All the problems get fixed, the whole IE is good, but 1 minute later IE gets hi-jacked again by res:// and it goes crazy again. PLEASE HELP!!!!

Due to errors on various message boards I made some changes.
You must know how to ID the file based on the filters provided in
the scan, as not all the files flagged are bad.
If you make a mistake or use the wrong guidance, it is completely
your responsibility and the helper that assists you.
If you are not sure about the nature of the file or how
to proceed, I suggest you research it first before attempting
to remove any *unknown file on your own.
*For Helpers and/or users that are not familiar with any of the
items on the scan results- I recommend using an alternative, once
you know what to look for!
--The directory 'junkxxx' is now included as a Subfolder in the FINDnfix folder
and is the destination for the file to be moved..

Reboot your computer in normal mode.

I did what you told me. Yes, there is no AppInitDLLs, like it says on the bottom of the log.txt. It says :

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]

A handle was successfully obtained for the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows key.
This key has 0 subkeys.
The AppInitDLLs value entry was NOT found!
