IS 2012 Slow start up - WIN XP SP 3
Just started (last week) to have a very slow start up. Process mon(SysInternals) bootlog, shows a lot of FSGK/FSSM etc activity during boot sequence. Automatic update seems to also be active too early(but I might be wrong!). Disconnecting the network before boot doesn't make any difference. Long wait on welcome screen. I note that a similar issue was supposed to have been fixed in SR1
Today i have visited my parents and they got the same problem. The System needs a cupple of minutes that it can be used.
They have Windows XP too.
I have check the settings of F-Secure and i saw that the Firewall has stopped and the System needs a reboot.
After the reboot the Firewall Service wouldn´t start.
So i have uninstalled F-Secure and installed it again. It seems, that after the reinstall the System works a little bit better and the Firewall Service works now. I commissioned my parents to start the system every day for some minutes (normaly they don´t use the pc every day) and on wednesday i check the pc again.
i have windows vista, since i have changed my anti virus from virgin media to F- secure my start up is so slow is this normal with F-secure anti-virus?
No. Maybe Virgin Media Security hasn't been completely removed. Check out this thread:
if i try deleting old virgin media anti virus again will it delete f secure anti virus as well

No. The uninstaller will only remove the old Virgin Media AV.
Specific uninstaller for Virgin Media AV here; UserCommunity-Uu-RpsUU.exe,
- Download and save the file somewhere that is easy to access on your machine such as the ‘Desktop’ or ‘My Documents’ folder.
- Double click the file to run it.
- Click Yes to confirm that you want to uninstall.
- Restart the computer when prompted.
If results after using this uninstaller are no better, uninstall F-Secure normally, reboot and then try a fresh install.
But take into account that F-Secure starting up on boot will take longer to load than the modified Trend Micro/Virgin Media AV you used before.5 Like
