You may have spyware in addition to a virus, if any. download malwarebytes from and after installing it, update it to the most recent database and scan your computer. Secondly, click start, and from the run line type msconfig and enter. Click the startup tab, and uncheck any programs that you don't want to start automatically every time you turn your computer on (they will still be installed).

    no, it's a good idea to have an antivirus program running like nod32 (i like avg free personally) and an antispyware program like malwarebytes. The free version of malwarebytes won't give you real-time protection tho, so you will have to either pay for the full version, find a serial key for it online, or just run it manually when you suspect something has changed on your computer.

    I ran a full scan and didnt find anything. nod32 hasnt found any virus either. what could it be the problem?

    Did you remember to check msconfig, by typing it in your run box and hitting enter, to disable all your unnecessary startup programs?

Aspire laptop has become very slow to power up

It is cause by a very serious virus called "Conflicker"
Try to Do a upgrade of 7 (Free upgrade from Microsoft).
The upgrade does not delete your files, it should detect and erase viruses and the startup is quicker. (22 secs on my Dell Inspiron 2200 with 512MB RAM!!!)
Currently, the only other solution is to do a complete re-install.
