My dad has a problem with his home pc and in stuck.ok.i turn on the pc the windows welcome message comes up and the music plays as normal,
then the backround comes up and the mouse arrow
but thats it,no icons,or start-up bar, then about 15-20 minits later all the icons and start bar appears,and most things work as normal,the AVG anti-virus wont start the box comes up but then flass off,one of the problems may be that he let is Norton Anti-virus has run out and carryd on useing the internet and im conserd it may be a virus

Is it similar when you boot in safe mode? (Press F8 before Windows loads and select from menu that appears.)
