Windows 7: Login problem

Login problem

I updated to windows seven about a month ago and no problems until this week. I turned on my computer and loged in, and it was extremly slow and unresponsive. When I say extremly slow, I mean it took over an hour and some of my desktop icons were still white. I tried Ctrl+Alt+Delete and closed every single open process it would let me, and still no luck. I booted in safe mode and turned off everything that started at login that wasn't a toshiba process. I have no idea what the problem is however when I first noticed the problem in the bottom right corner it said Windows 7 build 7600 invalid. Or something along those lines so I foudn the activation thing and activated it and now i don't see the message any more but im still having the problem. Starting in safe mode with networking is still fast though. I have a Pentium(R) Dual Core Processor with 3 GB of RAM running 64-bit operating system. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Got to search, type memory diagonostic. Make sure memory is ok

Go to device manager check processors.

Run antivirus scan, see results (This is my hunch)

Alright so its not a memory error and the processors show up under the tab. So I was going to try antivirus, but it won't let me install it in safe mode? It gets to the preparing installation and stops part way through. Any suggestions? Thanks again.

Everything you tell me makes me believe that it is a virus. The "nuts" out there writing these virus, are very shrewd. Somtimes they prevent scans, stop you from installing anti virus, even prevent you from going to sites that can help resolve the problem.

Can you get into safe mode and go to last know good configuration? If you can get that done, you will be able to install an antivirus.

Are you saying that you have to install the A/V, now? You did not have an A/V?

I havent ever used an A/V. I tried when I got my first laptop 3 years ago, crashed six months in because of virus' so I havent used one since. And I assume by last good configuration you mean a system restore? Tried it but it won't restore back to a good time. I can try installing another virus software or something, or what would you recomend for when I get this sorted out anyways. I'm thinking im just going to have to do a clean instal of 7 and hope that takes care of it.

HouseCall - Free Antivirus Scan


Malwarebytes.org


If you cannot download an A/V try this. The first is an online test. Its just a scan. You should be able to do that one

If you can the second is suggested by almost everyone at the forum. Small and easy to download.

The members of this forum, give their best advice and suggestions. Each recepient, must decide the best course of action for them. Whatever you decide, I wish you the best and hope everything works out.

As soon as thing work again, get a good Anti Virus. You can get a good and free one from Microsoft Security Essetials.

You should also make a copy of your HD and put in a safe place, so you willl never have this problem again.
