Default Computer running slow (donít think itís a virus)

Hi,

Just recently I have been experience an issue with my pc. When it first starts up it runs really slow but if I restart the pc 4 or 5 times if Iím lucky it will run like a dream.
Now Iíve run a full virus scan (Norton) plus ad aware and spybot (all updated) but the problem still persists.
Also had a look in msconfig and tried a selective start up but still the same problem.
I just find it strange that after a quite few restarts it works fine!

Any ideas?

start -> run -> msconfig -> startup

Uncheck any stuff that u don't need and look for a virus etc.
If u don't know what something is use google.

Remove NORTON! It's worth a try at least. I did it, and my PC just got a lot faster. Well, I'll tell you what I actually did.

I was looking at the XP Tweaks, and I came upon an optimization that told me to disable all non-Microsoft services. I did that, rebooted, and it was BLAZINGLY fast, faster than ANYTHING I've seen in the past month. But, some of my programs couldn't function. So I checked back all the services, and it was laggy as usual. So then I look at the non-Microsoft services, and Norton takes up like 6 services. I just uninstalled it minutes ago, and I've never felt happier in my life.

Of course, if Norton is important to you, then by all means keep it. I'm just relating to my experience.
