i have just downloaded Avg Anti virus free Edition after rebooting
windows starts to load , it checks for boot sector viruses, and brings up the wallpaper then just hangs on the timer.
i would be grateful for any ideas

Hi cookie13,

if using windows 98, have you tried pressing the f8 button whilst booting up to see if you can start in safe mode?

If you can scandisk the pc to allow any corrupted files to be repaired.

then reboot your pc.

on me and xp try using system restore

or else once in safe mode try uninstalling the software

If your'e able to load up in safe mode, go to run and type in "msconfig" this should bring up a windows allowing you to chose what loads at start up and this way you might be able to solve the problem.
