And the 1st thing to do is run a virus scan. Download a demo of Trend micro,
and turn it loose for 30 days. http://us.trendmicro.com/us/home/home-user/index.html
the $50.00 demo works fine. I got my last copy from Walmart for $45.00.
for 30 days it's completely usable. And better than house call, since it
doesn't rely on an Internet connection to do the scan.
>My computer takes about 20 min. to boot up. First it asks for my password,
If it's a 1 person machine, and the password is just an annoyance..
try entering 'control userpasswords2' in the START-search bar.
Then proceed to set it to NOT need a password.
>then the screen is black for the other 15 min. and the error message
my desktop takes a good 5 minutes to boot, and it knows it's overloaded.
>"Failure- Security Options- Logon process has failed to create the security

This could also be password related.

I would ask, what have you installed RECENTLY just before it started doing this
Then go to the Start - Search bar- enter '%SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc
/s' computer management devices tab, and see what if any are flagged bad.Then
try and reinstall them. If they're on the disk, an uninstall, and reboot can
work wonders also.
you can also replace the start-search box with the RUN command, should beon
the start popup also. The search box is pretty much identical to the run
