Hey again all. I know I already posted a problem about my computer "freezing" when windows is booted up (on June 30) but it is now July 8 and I have still not fixed the problem.
I am running windows xp home edition version 2002 w/ service pack one(1). Intel pentium 4 cpu and 512 MB of ram.
Ok after having this problem manifest itself I entered selective startup to figure out what was wrong. I found out that if plug and play was enabled under services the computer would slow to a snails pace when I loaded windows. So slow that it would appear to be frozen. However I could still move the mouse around. Normal icons and keyboard functions were null however.
In my last post it was suggested that a recently installed driver (keyboard) could be to blame but I have since restored all drivers to previous states and the problem is still occurring. I also thorougly checked the machine after that and found the backdoor trojan 'subseven' but have removed all of its spawn such as msr.exe (I think so) and STILL have the problem.
When loading the computer in safe mode everything works fine and there are no problems, BUT when I check in msconfig and services plug and play is running... if plug and play is what is causing the problem and its running when I load in safe mode shouldn't safe mode not function as well?
I know this is a long post but if I eventually get this problem fixed I promise I will write a full report on how it can be done for any other people who end up having a similar problem. :D
On a final note, If anyone requires additional information about my hardware or software specifications (that would assist in this issue) or anything else please feel free to ask.
