HELP my laptop runs with xp service pack 2. Every time i start up it goes into dead slow mode, ie. 30 minutes just to load. TTask manager says winlogon.exe is using 100% cpu but wont let me close it. Have searched net for answers but all seem to say do a sys restore or do a virus scan, Problem being my laptop wont let me do anything. RRReally need help with this have job interview on monday and everything I need is stuck on the laptop.

boot in too safe mode

first make sure you have antivirus and anti spyware - down load them to the desk top do not open or run -

disconnect from the internet - you do know this drill?


is your hard drive over 80% full? yes? it may be about to crash

there is many other things -- safe mode then check

remember if it is a virus and you do remove it when conected to the net your system will implode.

check the hdd

(off topic) So is it "dragon's prayer" or "dragon sprayer"? I'm never sure whether to abbreviate dp or ds.
