I removed NAV 2005 & installed NOD & now my system takes a LONG time to start up. So far I have tried the following: edited the registry to remove all NAV entries used the Symantec removal tools run Microsoft bootvis defraged C & D drives run Registry Mechanic the system runs fine after it boots. My last resort would be to reinstall XP however I would like to avoid this if possible. Any other ideas on what to try would be appreciated. Thanks.
