    Running WinXP Home on a 1.7G box - McAfee v6 ('Designed for XP'?) as A/V. During startup process a delay of upto 4 minutes occurs during which the screen carries a non-refrehed 'window'. This window is exactly size of the McAfee splash screen which eventually flashes through and the Desktop appears!
    Uninstalling McAfee removes the effect - anyone know of a patch (or working A/V for XP) ?

    McAfee's probably configured to do a full scan at startup. Check under the options in McAfee to turn off that feature.
