  trv4n 19:46 15 Feb 2008

Hello the lap top has suddenly started to boot up so slowwclick here vista basic 60 gb. It was working fine yesterday am when switched on in pm you log on and then you have a black blue screen for about 10-15 mins.A message 'logon process has failed to create the security options dialog/failure Security options'comes on for a moment. Eventually the normal screen occurs and prompts a message about Roxio has a partial incompatibility with windows with error paths.Choosing applications to use also takes a long time. also Zone alarm seems to have disappeared too!? I have virus checked with avast and adware with no infections-has anyone any ideas why? i also have threatfire installed,thank you

I'm afraid your error is all over the internet.

I suggest you Google 'logon process has failed to create the security' and try the solution that most matches your hardware/software configuration, e.g. RAID setup or WD USB disk, etc.
