My friends comp XP Pro was very very slow, so I defraged & Norton IS said it needed to be uninstalled & reinstalled. I uninstalled and everything was normal till I reinsatlled Norton IS & it was very very slow (4-5 mins for Word to load) I went to defrag & it needed to be done again. Its Ok at moment but I am sure it will happen again. Any ideas what it could be.

I think i would get a hold of the HDD mfr diagnostic utility to check the drive out.

There are other issues at work here if it is taking that long to load Word. Check the running processes, check for virus and spyware before you start any other troubleshooting.
