Machine is on life support

By brifd1 ·
Windows XP, SP 2, plenty of RAM.
It takes forever to load up. Further, I am lucky if I get one thing to run, whether it be Start/Run, a spyware program, a virus checker. It seems like a virus is on this machine. What can I do???

Boot into Safe Mode without Networking

And then try to run both your AV and Male Ware Scans. If you have anything nasty you'll be able to remove it when you are here.

To get into Safe Mode press the F8 key while the system is running the POST and wait until you see the screen giving you different options on how you want to boot the system.
