Okay, whenever i start up my computer it totally stalls for about 3 minutes. nothing will pop up, nothing loads, nothing shows or anything. and then when everything does start coming up it takes another couple of minutes just for it to start, i have 56K and i have never had this problem before,
another problem i have, i have Win XP and when i start up there is a black screen with a grey loading bar that comes across, when i first got the computer, (The comp is less then 6 months old) it had nothing of the sort it just started up and it was fine. but now it starts up, has a grey loading screen that shoots by, then it takes FOREVER to load the start page, I have Roller coaster tycoon 2, Warcraft 3, AIM, Ad Aware 6, Sims, Mirc, and tropico, installed on my computer. i previously had Tropico paradise island, C & C red alert 2, Oregon Trail 2, Age of empires, age of mythology, sim city 3000, Win MX, Shareaze, Kazaa, and Sudden Strike, i think C&C 2, Sudden Strike and Tweak Master might have corrupted things but i dont know how to check, i did a System restore, but the earlier days of the month would not allow me to restore it so i had to do it later on in the month, how can i restore to the first day i brought it, Basically how can i make my computer like brand new, like nobody ever used it. and what is wrong with it. all the loading bars that come with the sound menus, whenever i press up for the sound or down, there was a green bar that would show me where it was, now it is totally gone (the bar thingy) and there are files i had (E music) and it now gives me a incomplete dat file, and it says cant find the program i just want the comp back to normal so if i could get help it would be greatly appreciated.
