Moved from Home and Home Office to Business > VirusScan Enterprise for better attention.

Hi,

Boot time can usually be affected by the scan processes on enable option, however I believe that is disabled by default...  Just out of curiosity could you check the setting - go into VSE console and double-click on-access scanner.  The option should be listed under the general tab - is it off?  Also, is this a fresh install or upgrade, and is it standalone or managed by ePO?

cheers,

Thanks buddy that option was ON and i have made it OFF. Further, i am using this for the last 6 months or so on my standalone laptop machine.

No problem at all - let us know if it helps!  A quick further note - as you are not scanning processes on enable, it is recommended that processes are covered in your on-demand scan settings.  Sorry, forgot to mention that!

Another thing that can cause boot delays is if you in the habit of storing emails in your email client's Inbox.   I suggest creating special folders for storage and keeping Inboxes clear.
