Try running Windows in safe mode by turning the computer and holding down on the F8 button while the computer is booting.

Instead of the Windows XP screen you will get a menu displayed. Select the safe mode option and press enter.

If Windows doesn't complete startup in safe mode, you will have to reinstall Windows.

What anti virus program are you using?

Our computer got a problem on loging in every application installed. .i think theres a virus on it. . .im a begginer on computer i want to learn how to format it. . .the application run but in a few hours...


Which application are you talking about?

Ina any event, you probably do not need to reformat it.
The issue may be more to do with profile corruption.
Create a new log in user (Go To Control Panel through the link on your start menus, find User Accounts, and then add a new one.)

Once you have done this, restart your computer and use this log in instead of your original one.
See if the problem has gone away now.

If it hasnt and you believe you have a virus, update your AntiVirus program, assuming you have one, and instruct it to run a full scan. Then leave the computer alone for 3 or 4 hours to let it run.
