Configuring Norton Internet Security 2002

  M.I.K.E. 21:55 06 Jun 2003

I have Norton protecting my pc, I am using Windows XP.
The problem is when I turn my pc on I have to wait for 10-15 minutes until the Norton planet appears in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen before I am able to use my pc for anything, including logging on, reading email etc.
My pc just doesn't seem happy with me doing anything until the Norton logo appears, as you can imagine this is very frustrating.

I am wondering if there is anything I can do about this, maybe configure my pc in some way to suit Norton Internet Security.

Any answers would be much appreciated.

go to start/run and type msconfig ok

go to the start up tab and untick any programs running at start that you dont want.that will be everything except norton ie/firewall ok and restart.ignore the warning when restarting and tick the dont show again box.

that should be a bit quicker.

also after this you might want to try bootvis which will speed things up a bit here

make sure scheduled tasks are enabled otherwise this will not run.

click trace next boot and driver delay and restart

now click optomize system and restart again.
