My problem is with 'starting up' which has become very slow. I have a HP Pavilion 8000 laptop. I have recently just reinstalled my wireless netgear router although this has given no such problems in the past. I have installed spybot and Avira Premium Suite. The malware on the Avira has stopped working. Could this be connected? Would appreciate any help please.

There are a number of reasons that may causing your HP computer running slow to shut down or start up, but generally two factors: outdated hardware or poor system maintenance. For hardware part: you can get more RAM, higher CPU etc. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, errors etc out there, about 80% slow HP issues are caused by this reason, in this case you can rely on http://www.speeduphp.com/ to free detect and fix related issues.

Unfortunately, you're going to have to do some troubleshooting for this. Possible causes: 1. Errant programs running in the background(most likely) 2. Somebody else is sucking up the bandwidth 3. Someone installed a different wireless network driver on your computer and it doesn't work as well 4. You changed your encryption on your router and your machine seems to have an issue with it.
The first thing, I'd do if I had the laptop would be to run HijackThis! and see what programs are running in the background(or at least check the processes in the task manager). I might also log into the router and check to see if anyone else is connected. In the same vein, I'd probably log on with another PC and do some bandwidth checks www.speedtest.net is good for that.
Sorry I can't be more specific, but this could take quite a bit of time to figure out and difficult to explain in a text box.
