    Boot times

    In the current issue of Windows Secrets "House Call" refers to the "program" Soluto, so I installed it. It indicates that my boot time is 1.47 min, with "essential apps" taking up1.17 min. What seems remarkable is that Microsoft Security Essentials takes up 32.1 seconds of that time. Is this typical of anti-virus programs or is there something wrong with my installation.

    That is normal for anti virus programs some take much longer. This is because the anti virus program needs to load and start protecting before anything else loads.

    All typing errors are my own work and subject to patents pending. Except errors by the spell checker. And that has its own patients.
