I have windows xp pro, and my computer is pretty smooth and fast except for starting up or shuting down, because of norton antivirus 2006, I have test it several times, which I still need protection for my computer, therefore is there a faster way for my computer to load norton at startup?

No u can not.

NAV2006 is way more system hog, just cause of security.
It boots autoprotect, and protectes files, it runs a automatic liveupdate at startup and that takes time to.

and some other several stuff.

Norton is a known resource hog which is one reason many of us here recommend replacing it with one of the freeware versions from:

Avast
AVG
AntiVir PersonalEdition Classic

These are excellent alternatives if you don't mind having to pay for your protection:
NOD32 Anti-Virus Personal
Kaspersky Anti-Virus Personal 6.0

Your welcome and good luck.

BTW, Norton products can be difficult to remove so read the entire discussion topic How To Remove Your Norton Products"
