Windows 7: Suddenly Slow Start-up

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Suddenly Slow Start-up

Installed Windows 7 about 6 months ago.. loving it! Did a complete reformat & only loaded Windows 7 Ultimate, Office 2007 & Norton 360. Start-up was super fast, everything running great.

For the past week, she's suddenly taking forever to start-up. Holds at the 'Starting Windows' screen for 5-7 mins! And when it finally does load, I open IE and that takes another 1-2 mins to fully open. Ran update then complete deep Norton scan & it found nothing. Also, nothing in my 'Startup' under Programs.

Is this a registry problem? Worse? Thanks...

One issue is Norton. Its large, bulky and causes more issues than it fixes.

Thing is, I've been running Norton for 6 months no problems. All I really do on this computer is IE & Office.

What do you suggest to replace it?
