Okay trying to figure out why my parents computer is working so slow. First I thought it was just a RAM issue and added 2 Gig for a total of 3. That still did not fix the slow boot. So I got to thinking of what startups are making it slow. Using a free trial version of xpbootlog to see how much time is being used on each file at boot, I was able to find the problems, but don't know how to solve them. Hopefully someone here can help. I am attaching the whole xpbootlog file with the highlighted areas of main concern. Also, the highlighted areas are pasted below.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Try uninstalling Norton through add/remove programs then Google and download the Norton Removal tool.
I worked on a system just the other day that was dirt slow until I uninstalled Norton.
Then it worked fine.

Avast Antivirus is a much better product and it is free.
In the beginning there was the command line.
