Question about HP 417035-001 - HP Pavilion dv2000 Series Laptop Full Featured Intel Chipset Motherboard
Always locking up and extremely slow on start-up. Sometimes the wireless doesn't work. I've put on antivirus and cleanup. Still runs slow and same problems continue.
Here is what I myself would do.....
1. Remove any antivirus software you have and replace with with Avira AntiVir... its free and works A LOT better than ones you pay for. Download here: www.free-av.com
2. Download and install Malwarebytes AntiMalware from here: www.malwarebytes.org Free version on left side of screen.
3. Remove things running in your startup that are NOT needed by going in to MSCONFIG ( Start > Run > msconfig ) go to startup tab and uncheck everything that is absolutely NOT required... any blank entries, disable them (they are adware/spyware). If you have any questions about what anything is and if it is required, check it against this website: http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php
4. After cleaning up the startup list, save/close and restart the computer. When it comes back up, open up the malwarebytes program and click the "Update" tab... check for updates. Also open up the AntiVir and check for updates for it.
5. When the updates are done for BOTH programs, run a FULL scan with malwarebytes on ALL hard drive(s) you have in your computer. As malwarebytes is scanning each file, if it is infected, AntiVir will pop up with a box asking what to do with the file. ANY and ALL detections in AntiVir should be put to Quarantine.
6. After Malwarebytes is done, it will say "Show Results" or whatever.... click that and fix all problems it has. It may need to be restarted.... go ahead and let it.
7. After MBAM is done, you can do a full scan with AntiVir (would not hurt to do so).... all detections go to Quarantine.
8. Download ATF Cleaner from here : http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=25&Itemid=25
Go ahead and save it to the desktop..... when its done, double click on it, select all to clean and click OK.... let it do its thing and clean the junk off your hard drive.
9. When that is done, do a defrag on your hard drive(s). After that is done, make a system restore checkpoint and restart.
When all of the above is done, see if it is running better. :)
Hope this helps.

Do you have window XP or Vista? Try a system restore **make sure to save data to a flash drive first... ** 2nd option do a clean wipe or a XP Cd repair... its likely so much has been installed on the registry it is getting clogged up and adware and such is catching up to it...
