Hi, I just signed up here because our computer has been driving us crazy. About a month ago or so we had a bad virus problem. We purchased Norton Anti-Virus and that got rid of the virus, and then we ran the system restore discs. But the computer will barely start up. If it ever does get running, it runs just fine. But every time we have to restart it, we have to try 3 or 4 times becuase it will just freeze when it gets to the desktop. While it's starting up, i'll try Ctr+Alt+Del and look at the tasks that are running, and it says that explorer isn't responding. I have no idea what could be causing that, I know that's a vital application, and I guess that's what is making it freeze up. But I have no idea how to fix it. I'm afraid that all the manual shut-downs are going to permanantly crash the computer. Is there anything I can do? Thank you so much in advance if there are any ideas!
