I am trying to solve a very slow shut down and start up issue. I have Vista basic , 500 Mb of RAM and only a few days ago it was much faster.
I have run CCleaner Checkdisk Malwarebytes and have also done a virus and spyware scan with no infections found. I did notice , however that the hard drive seemed to be working overtime . I uninstalled Norton 360 a/v which I have on the system and things speeded up a lot. I had to reinstall it as I have already paid for a year and its only recently that things slowed down with Norton installed. I would be grateful for any assistance.
