I have avg anti virus and was never prompted to restart for updates to take effect.
I am running Windows XP, on Dell E310. I run AVG Virus and I had Nortons on here but didn't renew virus updates. But still have it on computer. WHen I got up this morning it had updated AVG virus and prompts you to restart computer for updates to take effect. I did. Now the computer will not do anything, it goes thru loading windows and all, gets to my desktop and thats where the cursor goes busy and I can't do anything. My taskbar wont come up or I can't even go to start menu to log off. I have to shut down with button. I ran in safe mode and downloaded SPYBOT Search and Destroy and fixed the problems it found. Rebboted and it is still doing what it was. I cant run in Safe Mode with networking. Where do I look next. Oh yea and I also had run a Virus scan with AVG.
