There is, however a known problem with a particular Norton update for which there's a fix but it doesn't apply to users of Norton 2004, only to 2002 and 2003.

Hi Jim. I'm running XP Home as well and my computer also takes about four minutes to boot up. I believe a lot of this has to do with Norton and or Sygate doing their scanning. I think if you started your computer, particularly without Sygate,Zone Alarm etc, you would see a big difference. If you had sight, you'd see that your computer does open into the desktop fast enough, but it takes a few minutes for Jaws to say, Jaws for windows is ready. A good few minutes is probably the norm for most of us running Jaws and a firewall. Peter ** Going on holiday and want to halt messages?
