Slow Start up

Hi,

I have noticed that my PC has been taking 3-4 minutes longer to start up than usual. It has been like this just before I installed Panda Titanium anti-virus. There are no viruses and I am getting very annoyed.

Could you please help,

Anti virus programs often result in 'slow' startups if they are set to scan files as the PC starts. Check the AV settings to disable this feature.

Panda is another one of those system resource hoggers, however i see no one has mention to check to see whats in your startup list, i.e. too much loading on startup, if there's not a lot, disable any kind of boot scanning and in panda
