Norton slowing down Windows resuming.

Prior to installing N360 PE, My TOSHIBA's speed to go to sleep and resume was ~1.5 secs. Now that I have N360 PE, the sleep was fine, but resuming takes about ~15 secs to resume. When I press the power button, the computer turns on, but my display does NOT turn on automatiaclly like it used to. I know that security softwares do make resume slower, but not by that much. If there is any way to solve this, please help.

Re: Norton slowing down Windows resuming.

Did you have any other securiy software installed before 360? If so, how did you remove it? You need to use the removal utility for that software to make sure it is fully removed.

One setting that will affect the start up time is the setting for Enable Boot Time Protection. If you set this to Aggressive, things get loaded quicker.

In NIS this setting is found under  Settings - Computer - Real Time Protection. Someone with 360 can help find the setting in 360 for you.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

Here you go:

In N 360 from the main page select Settings > Anitivirus > Automatic Portection Tab > Boot Tinme Protection.

I had Norton 360 V5 and yes, I used the uninstaller.

 

Thanks Yank!
