slow start up and shut down

  BigMan24 06:10 31 Jul 05

Hi guys,

Recently I noticed that when I switch on my laptop it seems like I have to wait a while unitl I can actually use it.

i.e. the windows desktop appears but if i try and open a folder/browser/program it takes quite some time to do this.

also when I shut down my laptop after it goes to the sut down screen it seems to stay there for a while before shutting down.

I updated my adaware and norton av then ran them, and also done a disk defrag, but this hasnt fixed my problem.

Do u know of anything i can do?
