Been using NOD32 AV for 2-3 years now and never been a real problem. However i now have a very minor issue which I've been un-able to resolve myself. I run a lean PC. I check every week for start up processes to remove and only have NOD and ePrompter running in the Notification Tray after start up. I know iTunes and Acronis True Image add processes that aren't in the tray but there hasn't been a problem until about a month ago. Before the problem started once i logged into my PC the NOD32 Splash Screen would appear and quickly disappear and then the ePrompter and NOD32 Notification Tray icons would appear and i could use the PC approx 5-8 seconds after logging in. It felt like it was almost immediate. All of a sudden about a month ago the Splash Screen now stays up for 25-35 seconds during which time very little else happens. Task Manager shows System Idle Process at between 93-99% whilst the Splash Screen is up, the PC is unusable and then it suddenly comes alive with a flurry of activity. I've tried Uninstalling and reinstalling NOD32. Defragmenting the disk Cleaning up the list of start up programs Emptying the Update Cache I'm really struggling for ideas now. Not a major issue but one I'd like to sort out if possible. Grateful for any help.
