Re: windows startup is stuck for 20 minutes

Hi, If system is stuck and will not let you do anything (including power down), remove the AC adapter & the battery. Reinsert batter and apply AC power. On boot before Windows start press F8 and select Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, uninstall any program that you feel may be preventing Windows from starting normally. You can also select Last Known.... and Windows will also start with the last known good configuration. You can also use the Uninstall or the Add/remove Program. Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Try out avira anti virus. It gives free updates. And you choose to pay if you want to become a premium subscriber.

Runs very slow,has been repaired twice for viruses

Have you tried a Disk Cleanup? This can often cause computers to run slowly. Look under Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools.

Virus Worm/VB.DKT

I prefer AVG all the time and i recommended it to so many frineds too ..but sometimes its really hard to break a virus code. Anyways one solution i always use. Unistall AVG from your system, if your system is running fine right now download Norton Trial version. It has full fledged features for 15 days. Use this Trial version to remove the virus and then uninstall it
Reinstall AVG again
You can try other antivirus like Avast, McCaffee etc in same way in place of norton
Hope it helps !!
If nothing works try to restore your system in some back date in safe mode.
Good luck !!

Anti virus 2008

You probably have a trial version of theAnti virus. Yes you can uninstall it through Control Panel> Add/Remove Programs.

But after uninstalling I suggest that you download a Free Version of Anti Virus. Just Google it or you can try AVG free version so you'll still be protected when you Browse or connect to the NET.

Frozen cusor!

I reckon you can still start the computer.  Try to go back to a System Restore point that had the computer functioning well.

Your computer could be under attack from Adaware, Spyware and Malaware or even viruses.  Please get to and download the free version of Ad-Aware to clean up your computer and visit to download a Trial version of AVG Antivirus to protect your computer against viruses and you may find that investing in the licenced software may protect your computer against external attacks.  Please dont forget to keep the Ad-Aware updated regularly.
