Toshiba satellite a300- 1MT takes too long to load

This is a brand new laptop. I installed AVG 8.5 free version, spyware doctor, msn messenger, mozilla, limewire and a couple of other programs but didnt do anything really other than that, 2 days later, my laptop when restarted, takes about 3 minutes to load, in other words, All I see is the please wait. It eventually takes me to the desktop but about 3 minutes later. This is a brand new laptop, it shouldnt take this long. What could it be?

See helpful links here, here, and consider running startup lite from here.
Possibly helpful forums here, here, and a useful tool to track the anomalies here.
Vista is more ram dependent than xp, and you need more than the minimum recommended dose to feel zippy, so you may have to consider an upgrade of your ram, depending.
Also consider scanning for malware, according to these protocols....There are other AV that are less resource heavy, such as Eset's NOD and possibly Avira free, and you may have better luck with a different security config. (see tests here.)

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I would download spyware and virus protection if you do not have any already, I recommend downloading SuperAntiSpyware from www.superantispyware.com (there is a free version) and also AVG AntiVirus Free edition if you do not currently have any Virus protection, you can download AVG from www.download.com (It is in the middle of the page where it says most popular downloads, It will be #1.
Run a complete scan with SuperAntiSpyware

Go to AVG and download the trial version of AVG 8. Install it and run a virus scan. AVG will find it and get rid of it. Also there is a company called Cerulean Studios that makes a program called Trillian for IM. It is a great program and you can IM people with AIM IM, Yahoo IM and MSN messenger all at the same time. Try it. There is a free version.

I have a toshiba satellite a-210 laptop only 8 months but it has become very slow to respond to mouse clicks. I am afraid I have a virus


You probably have spyware, especially if you surf the net a lot.

Download Ad-Aware from http://lavasoft.com/

also try spyware doctor: http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/?ref=afl_nenextech

Ad-Aware is a great program for scanning and removing spyware and is free. Spyware Doctor removes more spyware, but cost money for the full version. The free version will scan, but won't remove much without you paying for it. It is a very good program though, and the free program will tell you if you have infections.

Cannot sign in messenger


For the certificate expired problem, check the time and date to make sure it is correct. If it is not the you need to replace the BIOS battery on your laptop. (Not something I recommend you trying yourself, take to a Local shop)
I suggest uninstalling then reinstalling msn messenger.
