As don77 has quoted, you'll have to wait for happyrck to attend to this problem as this isn't a simple one.

For your information, happyrck is having problems with his account at the moment and he'll be back. Just hold on.

lets start with this..
if this is a desktop you can go to START..RUN...type in MSCONFIG...then click on OK or press ENTER..
click on START UP TAB...uncheck everything EXCEPT your AV and firewall...if its a laptop you have to be careful about what you uncheck or your touchpad and wireless and things like that will not function for you..

go here... and test your connection speeds and tweak your settings...

about the error message at bootup

Could not load file or assembly 'MOM.Implementation' or one of its dependencies.the system cannot find the file specified.


is Catalyst Control Center issue...
you can use msconfig and uncheck the Catalyst Control Center in the startup tab to make the error go away

possible fix is at this link...

basically it's uninstalling the ATI
a) Catalyst Control Center
b) ATI Display Driver
c) ATI - Software Uninstall Utility
and then reinstalling it...

ok i did the first thing you asked
it made the error go away
however it is still somewhat slow on the bootup and opening IE,msn,word and video games

then i did the speed test and everything speed was fine and seemed up too par

now i'm wondering if i should proceed with the removeing of catalyst or just leave it be

did you do the tweak test too...
lets hold off on the ati fix for now...
time your bootup ...write it down
norton is a real drag on even fast systems...lets see if its the guilty party...disconnect from the router or modem...try unchecking norton in the start tabs...reboot...see how everything works ...time your boot and give me the numbers

ok the tweak test everything was good and it didnt say anything was off

so i timed the bootups

Bootup with norton
22 seconds

Bootup without norton and without internetconnection
22 seconds

perhaps I misunderstood...you said..

very slow on startup and i get the following error when i boot up

we took care of the error already and 22 seconds to boot up is not slow..
put the checkmark back in norton in the start tab and reboot...you will not have the same boot time...
