Hello. I reinstalled WindowsXP pro on my Vaio laptop (1.6Centrino, 512mb ram, 80gbHD). Once i installed windows, everything is fast, but after i start to download updates, anti-spyware stuff and Norton, during one of restarts that is required by updates or software installations, laptop starts to slow down and takes about 4 minutes to load everything. I can use almost any programs during those 4 minutes that windows is loading, but networking only available after like 3 or 4 min. CPU is almost idle during that time untill it's close to 4 min when it loads everything in like 5 seconds.

I tried disabling Spy-sweeper and NAV2004 and even unchecked all "startup items", but it still takes same amount of time to load networking and volume icon. I went further and deleted all MS Windows updates and hotfixes, but still ... 4 minutes! I can't figure out why it slows down... I've been repairing computer for several years now, but can't solve this one. :thumbsup:

Here's the link to my lap-top's support page.

Any help is appreciated.

Have you tried the basic troubleshooting stuff like cleaning out the trash (disk cleanup) and defragmenting?

You did all you can do. Maybe updating your video card drivers will help. try disabling startup items in MSCONFIG, and using a Registry Cleaner.
