I haven't changed anything. I didn't even know what the MBR is. So, if I run the fixmbr application, and I have to totally reformat my hard drive, lose data and programs, how is this an advantage? Is it possible I might be running out of virtual memory? Did any of the data I sent you indicate I have a virus in the MBR? Dont forget, my machine was built in 2002 with a Pentium 4 processor.
I ran fixmbr as advised, no apparent change. Still takes 5 - 6 minutes to boot. Ran GMER quick scan, and "rootkit-like behavior" message still appeared. Attempted to run full GMER scan, but system re-booted on its own, so any log file was probably lost. Tried rescue CD, still doesn't work. Now what? I ran the full AVG computer scan, the only items that were discovered were 3 broken signatures. It seems like everything I do, either doesn't work, or slows my system more.
