this just started happening this morning i ran adaware and did what it said then i turned my comp off cuz i was done for the night. this morning i turned it on adn it took five minutes to start took longest at loading user settings. it finally loaded and everything runs extreamly slow and there is no start bar ( it is not shrunk down or anything like that i wish it was that easy ). I tried to do a system restore but it would not open any program. so i went to safe mode to do it and it said that it was unable to run it to restart and try again. i did this four times and now am to upset. i hope i provided enough info for you to help me. oh yeah and i just started this comp last tuesday.
