Long Startup Times
Excessive Start-Up Loading Times

Istaria initially builds a list of all files it needs to work with upon starting. Depending on your anti-virus software, the scanning software can make the start-up time take 5 to 10 minutes, or even longer. This is a known issue with Norton Antivirus.

Disable Active Scanning in your Virus Scanner

Some virus software actively scans files that are "touched," which can cause significant delay at startup.
