Xanster82Because after careful though I consider it best for you, I am going to call a halt to this topic.
As you know, I and other members, have tried a number of possible solutions.
You have been great to work with and I congratulate you on your dedication and willingness to try what we suggest.I know that you have indeed removed, all startup items from the msconfig - startup tab window, as of course we have discussed that issue earlier in the topic.
We have also covered some of the other issues connected with this.
I feel reasonably certain, that the problem is a combination of Norton and various tweaks.
The fact that Norton will run OK on one system is not an assurance that it will not slow down another system.
As I have already said, it does have a certain reputation, for adversely effecting such issues.I have decided that your interests are best served by asking you to go here.
Please read carefully the guidance in that link and create a new topic in our malware forum, with the requested log.
Please also provide a link to this topic, so that my colleague in Malware, may readily refer to what has been tried here.
If after you have a clean bill of health and the expert in Malware, and indeed yourself feel there is benefit, then you may of course come back to this topic, and we will continue, as yu wish, to see if we can further determine the cuase of the apparent slowness to load windows.
Thank you and good luck.
