XP PC slow starting


We use the managed McAfee antiVirus that comes with the SonicWall Firewall on our network but we have a problem with one PC.

It is an XP installed laptop which usually runs really well taking only a couple of minutes to start but if we install the McAfee anti virus on to it the it will take around 35 minutes to start.

Can any one help?

Re: XP PC slow starting

Hi Anthony,

Certainly, we are here to help you.

In your post you mentioned as, if you have McAfee installed in your computer, it takes a long time to restart.

In order to proceed further with this issue, I would like to know few details. Please let me know the following details :

Whether it is a XP 64 Bit or 32 Bit OS ?

Whar are the McAfee components installed in your computer ?

The version of McAfee SaaS & the DAT .

The RAM Size of your computer.

Is there any 3rd Party Antivirus program installed in your computer ?

Also please try doing a Clean Boot and let me know the status so that I can help you with this issue further.
