This PIII is while it is starting up - freezes. I have to restart, and may be then..Windows XP wll load. I installed Norton Anitvirus - quarantined and deleted quite a couple of virusses. Any ideas as to what I could do?

did you turn off system restore when you cleaned your viruses

Hi thanx for replying.

No, am I supposed to turn off system restore? I also found a virus in one of the System restore folders as my Antivirus showed. Still when the Windows XP Logo appears, the machine freezes. Then I have to restart.First in safe mode, and then restart, and maybe it will boot normal.

RUN VIRUSIS SCANNER IN SAFE MODE AFTER DISABLEING RESTORE WORKS BETTER

What type of antivirus works the best, as I got some Adware virusses as well.At the moment, I am running AVG, Bitdefender + Norton Internet Security professional 2004.
