I recently installed Norton AntiSpam and found my Windows
XP now loads alot slower than before. I uninstalled the
program, but the startup still ran slow. I suspect that
it left a program that slows down the startup.

What do I need to do to restore the original load?

I ran the Config Utility and looked through the Startup
area to uncheck programs that load, but was unsure of the
required programs. I know that sstray is required, but
didn't which others needed to be there. I want to try to
uncheck programs and load the programs selectively to
identify the unneeded slow-loading startup.

Thanks for your help.

Bill

Try using System Restore to take you back to a time prior to when this
began. Start\All Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore.

If that doesn't resolve it, check www.symantec.com for full removal
instructions or contact their tech support.
