Not sure if this is right place to post, but here goes,
All my specs are below,
For the last few weeks my internet connection is taken longer to go active. For a long time it was only 5-15 seconds until it connected. Now it is 1-2 minutes. I have done virus/spyware scans and have tried it in areas where there is no connection to eliminate an internet thief.
Recently, I have found that Comodo was being put on hold while it initialized and NOD32’s Antivirus and AntiSpyware was being disabled during the 1-2 minute startup. I never noticed this before, but never looked since the internet connection came up guickly.
I uninstalled/reinstalled Comodo an NOD32, no change. I have exclusions for each of them for each other.
NOD32 4.x makes a lot of problems with VISTA SP2.
You may have following problems.(It depands on systems)
4.NOD32 realtime protection doesn’t work
5.NOD32 realtime protection turned off automatically
This issue with NO32 4.x has been indentified.
ESET is trying to take care of those problems.
But there is no solution yet.
Also Lastest Version : 4.0.437.0 has same problem.
Otherwise, your SP2 updating process had a problem with other thing.
I don’t have NOD 4. I have NOD 3. And, I did a full image restore back to SP1. Same problem persists. This has been going on for a few weeks. I know it is not CF now, since I uninstalled it and had same problem. But, something is still causing CF to stay initializing for a minute or two. I still have .509, just checked. I could go back to .508 and see if the initializing problem is independent of my other problem. How do I do that without going back to an even older backup?
I am looking at some windows event errors, but don’t understand them. I could upload if anyone interested in looking at them.
Upload them please.
(including your hardware venders:MB,VGA,NIC,Sound etc)
more details needed.
Have you tried ‘Clean install’ for Windows and CIS?
Because the upgrading to SP2(not clean install) makes a lot of problems(it depands on system).
Sometimes, you need to reinstall those drivers even if it looks fine.
1.motherboard driver.(chipset patch)
2.Graphic card driver.
3.sound card driver.
4.other hardware driver(keyboard, mouse, NIC etc)
5.CIS(uninstall CIS recommended before you upgrade to SP2)
I recommend you use a clean install for your Windows.
I have two “Terminal Services” in my Windows Services. One was set to Auto and one Manual. The manual one was the Terminal Services Configuration Service. It deals with remote desktop configurations and certificates. I am on a laptop connected to a wireless router. I set the service to auto like the other one. I don’t why it affected the start up with CF and NOD32, but it seems it may have. Perhaps it was taking time to activate the service from manual to on.
Anyway, this may be a solution for others who have had CF initialize longer than normal. I shut down and rebooted three times now and the time from logon to internet connection and having CF and NOD32 up and running is back to five seconds or so.
Time will tell if this fixed it. But, this the first time it has started this fast in weeks or maybe months.
I know awhile back I disabled and/or set to manual several things I thought I didn’t need. That may have been when things started to slow down, and I never made the connection.
I will follow with a final post if this works. And, may reinstall Vista SP2.
