Default Norton AntiVirus Slow Downs?

I have installed AVG and Norton Antivirus a couple of weeks ago and it's just taking forever to startup now, when I click on my name in the welcome menu it shifts down and hangs for about a minute. The when the desktop pops up I get this message that AVG has updated successfully. Could this be the problem to my startup slow downs?

having 2 anti-virus programs installed at once would be the sorce of your problem. since anti-virus programs dig deep into the system to protect it, if another anti-virus program tries to get into the same spot, the two programs conflict, slowing down your comp, and in some extream cases, crash your system.

i wouldn't be able to help you with that, as i have only used norton. but both are good, repiputable programs.

i can say that Norton is good if you have the Corperate Edition, but on the other hand Norton Anti-virus is a resource hog.

Ok ONE THING, you are not supposed to have two anti-vir programs running at once, because it causes them to fight over each other, in the user manual it will tell you not to run them both.
