The start of the PC with installed "Acronis Privacy Expert Suite 8.0", Build 712 (same with 714), takes app. 5 to 10 minutes (app. 1 minute without installed Privacy Expert Suite). The system startup of Windows XP runs normal until the user login screen. After login it lasts about 5 to 10 minutes, since you can use the PC. At first I see just a few (about 5) icons on the desktop. App. every minute one more icon is shown. After 5 - 10 minutes all the other icons appear and the system startup finishes in a normal way. A reboot within 2 to 3 hours starts the PC in the normal 1 minute. But after a few hours in off state, the boot process lasts again 5 - 10 minutes. After De-Installation of the Expert Suite, the PC starts up in a normal way. I think there are some interferences with the virus scan and firewall software. I use "PC Cillin Internet Security 12". The tweaking, that the acronis directory should not be scanned gave no improvements. My PC configuration: AMD Athlon System (Athlon XP 1800+), Asus-Mainboard (A7V133), 512 MB SD-RAM, 2x 120GB Hitachi Hard Disks, Network, ... SW-Konfiguration: Windows XP Prof., SP2 (German) - all Patches applied, MS Office 2003, CorelDraw 12, Macromedia Dreamweaver MX2004 and Freehand MX, OO-Defrag 6.5, Nero 6.6, PC-cillin Internet Security 12, Acronis TrueImage 8.0, Disk Director Suite 9.0 (OS-Selector installed) and Privacy Expert Suite 8.0. Version 7 of the Privacy Suite (English version) ran fine without these problems. Already the first version of the 8.0 encountered the problems. Up to Build 714 there is no change in this behaviour. In the moment I haven't installed the Privacy Suite, since it is not usable for me. Maybe the problem is related with the thread of the interferences of Privacy Suite and PC-Cillin, but I didn't find this startup problems described so far (the crashes described in the PC-Cillin thread are also familiar to me).
