Re: Extremely slow shut-down times

Naw, I've got 8 GB or so left. Still need to get around to uninstalling Norton. Who knew that moving into a new apartment was so time consuming!

Re: Extremely slow shut-down times

OK, I got rid of the whole Norton Internet Security suite and installed AVG free version and Sygate free version. Shut down times are back to normal!!! Thanks for all the help you guys have given.

On a strange side note, somewhere between uninstalling Norton and installing the two new apps, all of my Firefox settings have been lost. This includes bookmarks. I have no idea what happened. Thanks again!

Re: Extremely slow shut-down times

You're welcome

Sounds like you may have had two instances of Firefox's process running at some point due to one of them not closing properly or crashing.

Go into the Task Manager (ctrl-alt-del) and kill all "firefox.exe" processes that may be running. Start Firefox. See if the bookmarks are there. If not, try the following:

1) Make sure firefox.exe process is not running.
2) Goto your Start Menu and click "Run" and in the box type: firefox.exe -p Note that there is a single space after the ".exe" and before the "-p". Hit "Ok".
3) Click on "Default User" and then "Start Firefox".

If the Profile Manager doesn't start for you after doing step 2, you must enter the complete path to firefox.exe, such as: c:\program files\firefox\firefox.exe -p (substitute your path in my example)

Re: Extremely slow shut-down times

Thanks for the info yet again, Ted. The firefox problem fixed itself after a restart, so you were correct yet again.
