Try Microsoft Security Essentials. I haven't noticed any difference in boot times. That's not to say it doesn't affect it at all, just little enough for me not to notice.

Strange. I run Norton Internet Security 2010 and it has not effected my boot performance at all.

I'm using Symantec Endpoint anti-virus and firewall, my system boots in around 45 seconds and the protection through Symantec rivals the big boy offerings like NOD32 and Kaspersky.

It contains many of the same components of Norton AV, so all I can suggest if you are having boot delays is that your hardware or memory isn't optimised, or there are software or driver errors in play.

MSE is a full security suite. I have not timed any boot times, but I know they are good on my machine.

You must have a valid copy of Windows and you need to have Windows Update (in Action Center) turned on. I have mine set to 'notify me' so I can choose when and what updates to install.
