Acer aspire startup problem

  AGK54 20:17 05 Jan 2008

Can anybody help please My laptop will not open Explorer or My Documents straight after start up - if I try to do a shut down it appears to lock up and the only way to shut down is to hold the on/off button down. If I start up straight away the laptop works perfect and will shutdown and start for the rest of the day ok but next morning after being off overnight we are back to the same problem.

A full system restore will cure te problem then it come back after a few weeks. I use AVG antivirus. Vault is empty.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
