  1. @H_D Partition format using NTFS data system, and after that new installation of Windows XP Professional SP3... For the long time this computer has served me well and I newer had any problems with running any software or OS... I have on dual boot Windows 7 & Vista and they are working like a charm... I didn't yet installed MS Office 2007 Enterprise Edition cause I didn't had any time for it but on old OS (also XP SP3) it was working great... Visual Studio 2008, Visual Basic, CoD2, MoH-PA, LEGO-Indiana Jones, LEGO-Star Wars... and many other app are running pretty fast on my comp. Well Adobe PS CS4 does block sometimes but not for long time and after all I don't use it that often. System is starting in about 30 s, with boot, since its fresh installation ofc. I need to w8 for couple of seconds for explorer to load my personal settings and after that I am ready for work. A-Squared Free doesn't start even Start Scanner option is check (is that option to start scanner on start up?). @Lynx I am not running any applications in background or on start up, I disabled all unnecessary so I can start my OS asap when I need it. I will use a stop watch to measure correct time when will a-squared Free start minus the time needed for windows to start up and edit it here in this post. EDIT ~34 seconds to boot system with bios detecting all hard drives and optical drives. ~13 seconds for windows to load my personal settings and applications on start up to start up On my stop watch thats 00' 47",87 I am ready to start any application now, will shut down Chrome and start a-squared Free. Well I am pleased with it starting. Results are >> 01' 19",66 01' 34",02 01' 19",89 The only thing I changed is that I was defragmenting all of my portions in last couple of hours, u see that rundll32.exe process in previous posts, he swallow most some amount of memory. Can u now suggest me how to speed up the start up time, this is surtenly allot faster but still I am not satisfied, I mean on software base, not hardware but please suggest that also. /EDIT Yes I notice the memory that a-squared Free is using during the start up and scanning, for me its 106 -130 MB at startup but I didn't check the memory usage of a-squared Free during the scan. CPU usage is momentarily 1% of both cores, usually its from 0% - 6% when I am just running Google Chrome. That almost all that I used these 2 days. Only thing I need to ask u is could it be because of quarantine, but as I saw he loads quarantine only when I enter it, so I am really confused. I didn't had these problems with any other AV even paid ones... Well for the AV solution I will consider a-squared Free as my full AV solution, I have my reasons and I last 8 months I have discovered some interesting facts about this AV, will keep them for my self but I believe that currently this is the best scanner on the market even though I am using it for the first time on my own OS. I will probably use McAfee's FW 8.5 with it and nothing else. Regards, Cokaric

  3. Well as a title says I am having a delay of about 5 - 10 minutes before my a-squared Free starts, is that normal or do I have to reinstall application? btw, imho this is one of the best AVs out there, even better that commercial ones. Regards, Cokaric
