Slow Windows Startup

Been having this problem for a while now, when Windows boots up, I take a look in my process running about 50 processes, and my user name doesnt appear in my user name and I sometimes get a %100 Cpu Useage and it takes a while to open a programe at this point, what is the course of this??

Have a look at this thread - click here - I was have similar problems and discovered it was an incompatibility problem between Spysweeper and XP.

Avg Free
Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite

Windows Defender

I also like to know how to run the chkdsk command as well

Do you mean sfc/ scannow?

the chkdsk command I think that you enter in run then you got restart the computer to allow to check your hard drive

Ah.Just tried it myself.Type that in and its automatic.No need to restart.

do you have all that lot start up automatically when you start the pc??

I just have firewall and AV running by default and run the others as & when I get bored.

Do you have two anti-virus programs running on your machine?

To run check disk,open my computer right click the hard drive,select properties/tools and then the check now button,it will probably say it cant do it and offer to at the next reboot click yes for this and reboot.
