    Much more info required Processor type/speed. Memory size/type. Operating
    System inc updates (which AV, Spyware, firewall etc)


    Create a bootlog on startup. See:

    Analyze it with Bootlog Analyzer: (free),fid,22895,00.asp


    Didn't mention your OS, so search for SHELLICONCACHE
    if you find it, delete it and reboot. (it will recreate itself)

    You do realise there's more at startup than just anti[virus/spyware]...
