Acer Aspire 5315 - Logon process failure.... Failure-Security Opt

My wife's laptop has gone postal. It now takes forever to start Windows Vista Basic. Noticed some desktop icons are missing and it is extremely slow. Gives a black screen for a while, then a red one. Also gave an error message DCOM Windows Host error along with the one on the heading. Any ideas guys?

    After saving pics, videos, etc on thumb drive I opted the "Alt+F10" route and followed that process. Everything has been running perfect like the day I bought it since. The antivirus is Mcafee by the way. I found out our sound uploaded several games from the internet precluding the issue. Go figure. Thanks for your responses.

Need to Restore My Acer Aspire 5315


Turn on your laptop...as soon as it turns you push thepower botton start pressing F8, this will take you to the system recovery screen. You will need to pick the option that says system restore. Dont pick the option that says restore to a restore point, you will need to pick the one that say destructive restore. usually u get this option by pressing the advanced options. It will give you a warning about the system being reformatted...are you sure...yada yada yada... click ok and it should reformat the system and then reinstall the original facotry software
