Hello one and all
Being new to this computer lark,can someone help me with my problem .
Windows XP is really slow at loading (over 2 1/2 mins) thats when the black screen with safe mode start / start with last known config / and 2 or3 other options does'nt show its self .Also i have AVG as my anti virus (the free one )which keeps popping with the message that it's not loaded .As i say i'm newish to this computer game so any help would be great .
All the very best to one and all for the new year

Try "defragmenting" your system (start->all programs->accessories->system tools->disk defragmenter) This should speed up your system!!!!

As for the AVG problem, I can't really direct you on that, cause I use Norton Anti-Virus... SOz about that!!!

It's not a actually error messages ,but a pop up from the task bar saying AVG not loaded or Email scanner not active.I must have installed and uninstalled 3 or 4 times .
Cheers
