Wow, 7 minutes is a long time for booting. I am using the free Norton Internet Security from Comcast on both of my computers.

I am running an HP with the I7, 950, 3.07 processor, 8 gb of ram and a 1.5 Terabyte hard drive and Windows 7 for the operating system.

My boot time is about 1 minute. The last 25 seconds of that is the Internet / Network connecting and a couple of Gadgets I have on my screen.


I also have a Lenovo laptop with a Pentium dual core processor at 2.0 speed and 4 gig of ram, a 320 gig hard drive running Windows 7.

The boot time for this one is about 2 minutes. This one requires me to type in a password to continue to the finish of the gadgets and the wireless internet connection.


I have been using Malwarebytes for years. It used to find things that others missed. I run a scan once a month. It has not found anything in the last 2 years since I am running the Norton Internet Security.
