I recently upgraded to XP pro, and since then, when i start up my lappy, the startup goes very slow. It starts up, and gets to the password page really fast, but when it starts to load apps, it loads fanqui, speedswitch, stopzilla, and the audio program no problem. But then it takes in excess of 5-10 minutes to load norton anti-virus, the intel prowireless app, and weatherbug. In the meantime, while i am waiting for these things to load, i can't do anything else on the lappy. If i try to open anything, even solitaire, it won't load...and then all of a sudden, when weatherbug, norton and the prowireless app load, whatever program i tried to load loads right with them. i tried running msconfig, and i turned off what i didn't need on startup, but what do you guys think is the problem? what can i do to fix this? could it be my xp pro?
