I recently uninstalled my CA Internet Security Suite 2007 Edition and then my log-in time was instant, it loading in a flash. Then I installed my new security programs: AVG Free Edition, Comodo Firewall Pro. I had already had the latest versions of Spybot and Ad-aware aswell. When I had CA installed the little blue bar on the boot screen went across about 7 times but log-in time would take about 45+ seconds. Now, it is like the situation has reversed. It seems with the new security programs, the boot-up time is longer, on the boot-up screen the bar goes across 15 times!
Does anyone know why this happened?
