heres the deal folks. ive been trying to get an answer to this question for a while. the entire question is actually posted in the virus section with the title "laptop freezes up right after booting" no one has answered it and i dont know why. ive posted a lot of information there, so please take a look at it and see if you have a solution. it is already worth 500 points there and i will tack on another couple hundred here, so it will be worth your while to answer it. PLEASE HELP!
