virus or not RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, i have been using this HP with Vista preinstalled for some 4 and half months, and i have noticed some issues.
    First, it takes almost 3minutes to boot when you shut down, and so, i now opt for hibernate all the time.
    Secondly, as it boots and just before the sidebar appears, i hear a sound from the laptop. it is worrying, and i have heard of viruses which give a kiss-like sound.
    Could any of this be the result of a virus? I have Malware's anti-maleware, avast home edition and AVG free edition installed. Could there be a conflict somewhere?
