    Slow start-up when using Norton Internet Security 2002?

    If you are using Norton Internet Security 2002, and are experiencing slow start-up of XP.

    i.e. you can see the desktop with icons etc. but it takes 30-60sec before you
    can start using the computer.

    1. Click on start buttom.
    2. Select control panel
    3. Open “Network Connections”
    4. Under “LAN and High-Speed Internet”, right-click on your “Local Area Connection” and select “Properties”
    5. Under “General” tab, select “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” and select “Properties.
    6. Select “Use the following IP address:”
    7. Under “IP address” enter following : 192.168.0.1
    8. Under “Subnet Mask:” enter following : 255.255.255.0
    9. Click “Ok”

    That really shouldn't have an effect on Norton Internet Security...
    And not only that, if one who does this has a dynamic ip, they'll run into problems, just like Zedaxx did

    Too Bad........

    Anyway,
    according to another Norton Guru

    " 192.168.0.1 is not a valid IP address to get to the internet. It can only be used behind a NAT device.
    That IP address doesn't go anywhere. Its only valid for local neworks."

    Glad someone else was puzzled. That range is reserved for LANs, so I didn't think it could help. I used NSW for several years but quit because it's a resource hog, and most of its functions are performed by Windows, without all the bells and whistles. It installs dozens of programs, most of which I could never figure out the utility for, and, when I did need some of the advanced functions - they didn't work. Capping it all off, you've just about got to reformat in order to get rid of all the debris - or get a good registry cleaner. I use NAV and like it, but, to me, NSW is worse than useless.

    Disable NIS on startup. Start->Run->Msconfig->Startup.
