My PC is slower that it use to be last month, I have checked for mailware and all is good. I run Spybot & SD-resident and teatimer now and Norton 360 to protect.

Thank you in advanced.

Let me know what you need to start.

There could be a number of things slowing down boot up. Services that you are using frequently now could be slowing down the process. I have another PC that had a hardwired keyboard and mouse. Then, I went and installed wireless ones. The driver package from Logitech was large and took some time to load. Same thing happened when I installed a new printer. New devices or programs could be setting themselves up when you start Windows, increasing the boot up time.

Since you mentioned 2 products, I'd start with them first.

I've had issues with the TeaTimer function of SpyBot and would suggest uninstalling it.
I've also had issues the Norton product, and would suggest removing it to test. Make sure that you've established your Norton online account so that you can easily recover your activation key from them. Then, use this free utility to remove all traces of it: http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgen...005033108162039
