chech your system resources via taskmanager. also id the hog using up your resources.

whats your OS & net connection do you have (e.g, dial, dsl ,cable, satellite, etc)?

if you temporaily remove ALL startup files (msconfig), does boot up immediately?

important. also, if applicable - check your install log for the error details you had while loading van a/v... if you dont understand the errors - call norton/symantec or whoever they are this year, for clarification. :tazz:

Admittedly, I am not a Norton fan... Check your norton settings and make sure you are NOT check drives on bootup. Some a/v pgms, take a long time after thier initial install because to establish a baseline (clean) system, they run a thorough scan of all your drives... the bigger the drive, the bigger the time... this should only happen after the INITIAL install...

Load/start Task Manager and under the processes tab, ID the bugger using up your resources.

A/v pgms should run as a normal background task, but I have seen several - including Norton, Computer Associates, & McAfee use 100% of the processor... working overtime or application problem/bug, i dunno...

Another things is when i disable the internet then it takes 10 sec from windows upstart to i can use the comp but when i activate the internet then it takes 45 sec from windows upstart to i can use the comp both with norton installet..i gues this has something to do with norton connecting to my router or something with firewall set up.

Not that i use any firewall beisde that one in the router if there is one

Use the live update to update your norton, then unclick the liveupdate so it will only run when you run it, disable live update, When you 1st start your comp up, Norton will automatically look for updates, and this I would think is what is giving you the long start up. Just make sure to fully update your Norton, and then run update about once a week or so.
