A client's Win 7 Home laptop will not fully start in normal mode. It takes a very long time to get to the point where one is given a choice of user accounts. Also, at that point it starts playing music and news announcements, jumbled together.
In safe mode I have been able to run rkill, followed by Malwarebytes. I found just two things with that (sorry I didn't make note of what). Restarted, ran rkill and ESET online scanner. Found nothing. Then Roguekiller, then tdsskiller, then Superantispyware.
It is still slow-starting, does the music/news thing, and won't start in normal mode.
