RatingThis is Norton antivirus autoprotect from what I've learned. But it does about 180,00 I/O reads every time I start my computer and makes it unusable for about 2 minutes before it's done doing whatever it is doing. I would appreciate anyone's input on how to reduce the delay it produces at startup.
