Start up problem

  phil.smith 12:32 09 Jun 2004

I am running win xp home on a P4 HP computer with Norton AV 2004

Most times when I start up,everything loads including my scanner and then Norton but sometimes everything loads except my scanner and Norton and I have to wait perhaps 30 seconds or more for the computer to start up these 2 and I am unable to access the internet until these load

There seems to be no pattern as to which order startup happens

Can I do anything to make it so I have no wait?

Thanks Vog

Unfortunately neither of the two links seem to work - page not found!

Any others please?

Phil, try this link;

This is a great piece of s/w. When I installed an ran this on my system, it took nearly half a minute off my boot time!!

Thanks Dagwoood

Will give it a try

No problems phil. VoG™'s links did work for me however. I'd give them another try as they tell you how to use the s/w.
