I have not. What I'm looking for is someone who might know what's causing the slowdown, and a way to fix the issue so that I can continue to use Norton.
As Golden mentioned, I did in another thread. Good to hear you've gotten your system down to reasonable boot times, but we generally recommend here not to use Norton products. There are others out there (cheaper, sometimes free) that do just as well without causing such system distress. However, you should use what works for you, and if that's Norton, then go for it!
