    I'm currently trialling KAV 7, after looking at their "migration" special offer.

    My computer now takes between five to seven minutes to complete its boot up.

    Why - and is there a cure - or should I abandon KAV now?

    What was your previous security set up?
    Any other security software installed?

    Windows XP Home.
    1 MB RAM, Intel Celeron 1.7GHz processor.
    Running Online Armor (free), Comodo BoClean, Comodo memory guardian, Superantispyware Pro. real time protection, Spyware Blaster.
    Windows Firewall OFF.

    Immediately previous AV - NOD32, (fully un-installed, including application data & Regcleaner check)
    Also trialled Avast!, with no problems.

    Normal boot up before KAV around a minute and a half.

    Boot hangs for ages, with no response from mouse, no system tray icons, and no response from Windows task manager (CTRL, ALT, Del.)
    Very little HD activity for a long time and then after the five or so minutes it starts working & boot slowly completes.

    It's likely connected to one of these. Have you tried to see the effect of either uninstalling Comodo Memory Guardian or disabling the realtime component of SuperAntiSpyware? I would guess that the former is the more likely candidate based on the limited experience I have with everything except BOClean.

    Not Comodo memory guardian, not Superantispware - boot time getting worse - can't be doing with it - goodbye!

    Welcome to the Familiar world of regular Kaspersky complaints roger :cautious: I sometime ago requested a refund for Kaspersky as I had similar issues. Kaspersky WAS! once a good AntiVirus, but Alas no longer, Much unnessecery tampering on Kasperkys behalf have rendered their products as tiresome to the end user,, and in short not worth the hassle :shifty:

    Well, I've put NOD32 v 2.7 back and all is OK again!

    Kaspersky had a big plus in that it is able to scan SSL mail (Gmail using their POP & SMT servers) without the hassle of trying (and failing) to configure Stunnel!

    NIS came with my laptop, but I uninstalled it straight away and ran the removal tool, ages ago, so I doubt it's that.

    IMO you're running too many "security" apps for your celeron 1.7ghz :eek:

    i would stick with KAV, adaware & spybot these on-demand only and spyware blaster for prevention. Turn on XP firewall if you're using a hardware fw, otherwise get a free fw like comodo. I would ditch all others.

    More likely to be the 1mb of ram he uses(lol)I assume its meant to be 1gb?
    think I have read somewhere that Kav doesn't "get on" with Superantispyware Pro if it runnning realtime,but if you've given up and are happy with what your now using:-keep using it!

    you could try getting a GSI report from kaspersky:-that will point to any possible conflicts:-

    Although your computer specs are pretty low, and you're running a lot of security apps, I'd like to add that I had a similar experience on my computer; extended boot-up times. All maintanence, settings, reinstallations, etc didn't help so I uninstalled. This was on KIS7, too, though.

    Just a thought. Maybe whatever caused my KIS7 to slow me down is happening with KAV7 and yourself. Attempt computer maintanence and check the settings so it doesn't update/scan on boot.

    Please use the link Steve was talking about so we can help. As far as I can see now. You are using way too many application at real time for your PC.

    yeah, not just SASpro. but any other product running in "real-time" along with KAV on a celeron 1.7 o_O
    i forgot to mention i always disable the 'startup scan' while installing, i think its not necessary at least in my case :)

    easy to fix,

    uninstall all security programs apart from Kaspersky, and dont be cheap, get a router with built in firewall :D

    simple as that.

    Sorry - not a Celeron - it's a` Centrino - same size.(1700 MZh)
    I would think that there's plenty of umph with a processor like that an 1041 MB of RAM as I'm only on XP home?

    Sorry for the typos!

    So why, with " too many security apps" does it boot OK with Nod32 or Avast, but not with KAV?

    Well, one obvious difference is that default enabled (I believe) startup scan. Try disabling it and assess the impact.

    rogervernon:

    I would uninstall all your security software apps and then run a good registry cleaner like CCleaner or RegSeeker. Install KAV7 and disable the start up scan. Leave everything else at default settings for now. Do a restart and see if that helps. If you really think you need all those other security apps, I would install them one at a time, do a restart after each install to see how they affect the start up time.

    With KAV 7, I don't think you need SAS running real time. KAV has very good malware detection, so I don't think you really need all those extra security apps running. Just my opinion.
