recently my computer on bootup has just sat at the welcome screen for about a minute. it used to only sit on that screen for like 5 seconds or so. i have widows xp. is there anyway to solve this? and also, ive been getting a lot of popups, but didnt used to. i run two different spyware sweepers regularly, but it doesnt seem to help at all. how can i get rid of those?
