    Nope. It's the same in 8.1, Defender works fine. Something else must be slowing the process down since you said that in a minute all is oké.

    Thanks for your interest.

    Maybe you missed the latest comment of the experts: due to recent SW changes their is a delay so that the the real start-up goes as quick as possible and the Defender has to wait a little.

    So i am not looking any more to that delay and in the near future i will decide if i will keep the Defender or will install again AVG Free.
