XP user, Notebook takes about 22 to 27 mins to boot. Norton takes most of that time i.e. loading and updating definitions. Once boot is completed operation is suitabily fast. I had problems with Ad and Spyware. Purchased Spyware Detector and Max Reg Cleaner. Found 31 problems with spyware and over 200 regitry problems. Then I had a problem with Norton and Spyware Detector confliting. This made start up even slower. Went to msconfig start up tab uncheck Spyware Detector and Max Reg to not start. That helped. However, start up still take over twenty mins.
I came back to bleeping computer to start up list tab, downloaded "Autoruns" and ran program. My start up looks like a two dictionaries. Viewed Startup forum. I am more in the dark than before I started.
I must have a dissconnect in my brain. I still can not find a status fo any of the entries. When I look at Autoruns "Everything" tab it is very intimadating.
What is a good starting point when useing Autoruns? Where do I find a Status? I have viewed the "Start Up Data base" however I did not find any of the entries in my scan. I did a search on a Display Panning CPL Extension File not found: deskpan.dll "Unknown : the status of this entry is unknown at this time and more research is necessary"
Please point me in the right direction.
