when you formatted your drive to remove the virus / did you use the full format or quick format option ??????

The quick format option only partially formats the drive / just the sectors needed to install the OS files.

I prefer to use Boot & Nuke a drive eraser prog to erase a drive to guarantee the virus has been removed .

then you will need to reinstall your OS, patches & updates as well as progs

let us know how you progress / dont hesitate to ask more questions if needed

Hi, I have had this same problem, and have reformatted (complete not quick) to try and fix this problem. Never had a virus, but usually after waking up from standby, my pc locks for a few seconds and then continues as oif nothing ever happened, so far it's just been an annoyance but hey, since someone else has it too I thought I'd ask.
You may want to run msconfig and see what is loading up during statup, sounds like something is still loading in the background causing the computer to pause.
