    I have been having some small problems. One of the things I was told to do was run msconfig and disable all but Microsoft. No problem but that did not help my little problem. After a few days I decided since it did not change anything to go back to the way it was. Now I restart and it boots up quick enough but then I have the XP theme as I wait for a few minutes for processes to start running. I can Ctrl-Alt-Del to get task manager up and I can actually see there are only about 10 processes and they are not using any CPU. And after awhile other processes appear and CPUsage starts then pop all my program shortcuts appear and I'm in buisness. It is confounding. I tried going back to just Microsoft and still the same slow start of processes. I have never heard of this before and I hope someone has an answer or a cure. Only me, I'm guessing:cool:

    rka01- Thanks I will keep those on file. I am not sure what I did right. I was working with symantic, then I got a reg error program and ran that. Also had run sfc /scannow although I did that before to no avail. Anyway the problem is gone. I must start a new thread on Isasse.exe error message. Just real quick. I had a virus in WINDOWS/Cursors and after removal always got an error message at startup that the file was missing from Cursors. Microsoft couldn't help me. I finally went to were the file is (system32) copied it and pasted it in Cursors and bam problem gone.
