Did this slowdown happen right after you installed Kapersky? If you aren't sure if it is to blame or not, you could disable the start up items associated with it and then restart the computer.

Uninstall Kaspersky completely, and use the removal tool to clean up the remnants. http://support.kaspersky.com/downloa...vremover10.zip

Then, install Microsoft Security Essentials instead. Your boot times will be barely affected.

hi i have the same internet suite it is a big program that does slow down the boot up time i don't think you can speed it up most anti-virus software slows up the boot time as it starts protecting as soon as the bios kicks in i have to wait up to 5 mins and when i am up and running i am using 150 processes which is pretty quick compared to other operating systems i use ( windows 7 is the best )

150 processes????? I'd have to try on purpose to have half that many running at start up.

Not to get into a *peeing* contest, but my system is a bit more powerful than yours, and I wouldn't dream of having that many apps running at start up. I'd rather save my system's power for my intended uses, instead of just churning away at unnecessary bits in the background.


BTW> Running a second monitor doesn't have anything to do with a computer's power. You could do that with a $30 video card installed into a Pentium III tower.

I'm not pointing that out to be an ass, I'm doing so to suggest maybe you could use some friendly advice, either on here, or from a friend to optimize your system. Most likely, the performance of your system is being severely crippled by all those extra processes. Why not trim the fat and make your system run much faster?

thanks for the advice i have just gone through what programs i don't need running and trimmed down the cpu usage by 40%, and start up programs i have reduced as well i am multitasking all the time that's why i use two monitors.

That should help, but you should target your CPU to be around 0-2% at all times when idle. If you are at 50% at idle, for example, you'd be doing the same thing as disabling two of your four cores in your CPU.
