Over the past few weeks when I boot up my Windows ME Office 2000 PC it kind of pauses for a couple of minutes before loading my desktop icons on the screen. It then works as normal. I can't restore my system as I had a nasty virus on it (which I have now got rid of). It's not the RAM and the only software I have installed since this started is Avast anti virus. What could it be??
Tried the suggested and this hasn't made much difference. Could I have some sort of virus which is slowing my bootup, that isn't traceable with Avast? I couldn't find WIN.INI or SYSTEM.INI and I have enabled "Show hidden files and folders".
