Norton 2003 seems to be slowing up the startup process. Anybody know of any cures ?
Can we turn off the ccapp.exe and other programs that it initializes safely ?
Thanks .

No, you cannot turn off or disable those services. NIS/NAV need those to function correctly. However, you could give bootVis a try and see if it can optimize your start up.

you could try turning off options like "scan on run or created" etc.. I usually have mine disabled so it doesn't slow my system down.. I do keep "scan email" running and I scan each file I download to be safe..

I only recommend disabling NAV and options if you keep on top of updates and manual scans.. otherwise for many users it's best to keep NAV at it's default settings to scan as usual..

Actually, NAV2K3 is a resource hog at shutdown/resume, not startup.

As for the Celeron 466...well, it makes for a nice tree ornament.:happy:

I do keep updating , but I dont do manual scans regularly.I have done as Robbie recommended , and it does seem to make a
slight difference (on My PC ! :p )

Lets do a poll on how many users are using processors below 500 MHz for Win XP.

@delta4s are you on Xdsl connection to the net? if so go to control panel/network connections/lan& high-speed internet/right click/properties/internet protocol [TCP/IP]/ properties/Use the following IP Address

IP Address: 192.168. 0. 1

Subnet mask: 255.255.255. 0


see if that helps

I am on a cable connection , sharing a 1 Mbps line. I already have an IP address. If I change that, my connection might not work.
I havent tried AVG yet, though.

This is another IP address that goes on , This IP should be on the Local Area Connection, when you go into network connections it's the second icon on the bottom you use this for, I know it work as I have to do it too and I use norton pro 2002.

Had the same problem. Try to disable the WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) service. It worked for me

Why anyone would want to use NAV is beyond me. AVG does a great job, auto updates has e-mail integration and is not a system hog like NAV. Besides all the rest of its great features it is FREE....FREE. I run the pro edition and the only difference I can see over the FREE one is the interface. If you have NAV especially 2003 on your system or System Jerks 2003 my advice is to GET IT OFF YOUR COMPUTER YOU DON'T NEED IT!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
