Boot time scan error!
« on: August 27, 2010, 12:14:22 PM »
Hi,I just finished my boot time scan with Avast! 5 free version 5.594 and I saw this message after the boot time scan completed,"Interactive logon process initialization has failed.Please consult the event log for more details".After that I pressed "OK" but when I moved my mouse cursor it did not move(Hanged).The whole computer suddenly hanged and I pressed the computer on button to shut the laptop down.

Is there any threat detected by the boot time scan?

An Event error is an MS error, which you can find under Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer > there will be several options:

- Applications
- Security
- System
- Internet Explorer

Check to see if you have a red or yellow error in one of the first 3 options.  Double click on it for more information.  There will be an Event Code number.  You can put the Event Code number in this site: http://www.eventid.net/ to get more information.  I suspect it pertains to why your machine hung on you, but it may give you more information.

You should also check to see the results of your Boot-time scan.  If all is clean, you may need to do some cleaning of your machine.  I recommended tool that many of us use here is CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool.  There is a Slim version available at http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds - 4th one down.  It removes unused files (cache, temporary Internet files, etc.) from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space.  It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history.  Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner.

You may also want to consider upgrading your RAM to a total of 2G if possible.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.  Thank you.  :)
