Having just stumbled on to this site, it is obvious there are still caring & giving folks, of their talent and time. Thank you.

After years loving Win98SE, I have embarked on Win-XP-Pro SP1 (fresh install on a new system). Ever since installing Norton SW-PRO 2004 ( and 20 or 30 more installs, un-installs, and reinstalls of every program and utility imaginable ), boot up has slowed and slowed and slowed. The black screen time between BIOS load and WELCOME is now 40 seconds. Once the desktop loads, there's another 20-30 seconds of delay before Norton Password Manager activates and the red "X" on the Norton A/V tool bar finally goes away.

In reading several threads, the expertise levels here are phenomenal. And I did the Hijack code read.

Here it is. Anything weird? Wrong? Off-color?

You may wish to print out a copy of these instructions to follow while you complete this procedure.

Please save Hijack This in a permanent folder (i.e. C:\HJT). This ensures backups are saved and accessible.

Please go offline, close all browsers and any open Windows, making sure that only HijackThis is open. Scan and when it finishes, put an X in the boxes, only next to these following items, then click fix checked.

Please reboot into safe mode - How do I boot into "Safe" mode?.
Be sure you're able to view hidden files, and remove the following files in bold (if found):

C:\WINDOWS\nsdb

Reboot normally.

It looks like you can save alot of memory usage by disabling the startup features in Microsoft Office and Quicken. The more things you have starting up with windows the longer it will take to boot. Go through all your programs and disable the startup features (usually in Tools, Options in the program) to applications you do not need to be taking memory at system startup. You can also look to see what is in your startup folder by clicking Start, All Programs, Startup. Also make sure to defragment your hard drive every so often, especially after installing large programs, or uninstalling them. Click "My Computer" right click your hard disk, click properties, click the tools tab and click defragment now. Keep your temp files cleared out also. Same way as defragmenting, but instead of clicking the tools tab, make sure you're on the general tab and click "Disk Cleanup".

Thanks for your help. Ironically, removing the (file missing) files caused the IeSpell program the disapper. I reinstalled IeSpell, it's working perfectly, but those "missing files" reappear also in HiJack.

Perhaps the link to the .dll it cannot find only activates when "help" is requested. Nonetheless, my machine is answering the call to duty faster, operating more effectively, and again Thank You!

I suspect Norton. Check the application log and see how long it took for ccEvtmgr to load.

Thank you for responding to this thread. I should've asked to have it closed.

The problem was the supposed expedited search feature which I disabled (see the locked threads for XP tweaks). Everything is running twice as fast, if not more.

Thank you again.
