IS 2012 Slow start up - WIN XP SP 3


Hi all,


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.

    No. Maybe Virgin Media Security hasn't been completely removed. Check out this thread:
