Ever since the new MS Security fix my system takes longer to boot up, especially my Norton IS and AV programs. My system ususally boots up in about 30 seconds now it takes about 3 times that much time, any idea what this is all about??
The only thing i noted was the changes to the system files caused my firewall to block the updated components from network access. This does cause a delay. Check if your firewall is using component control technology.
It doesn't hurt to have a defrag and use a tool like BootVis to improve boot time speed after applying any updates that affect files used during OS boot.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
