sometimes it takes so long that my windows bubble will pop up & say "your virus protection is turned off, click here to fix it" and give it a few more seconds & it loads in.
I've run cleaner after cleaner, done all scans in my kaspersky (i have the internet security 6.0) done all i know to do, looked into my msconfig at my startups & services tryn to clean them up.
I even done a system restore.
Like i said i never really paid alot of attention but i do think that it hasnt took this long to load in before.
thanks , tim
