Where does that standard come from?
My computer is not ready to go to work at that point. Boot time should be from the moment you push the start button until the computer is ready to go to work. Is anti-spyware included in your anti-virus requirement? SUPERAntiSpyware is the next to last item to load and go to work on my main computer when I boot. That would be at about the 2 1/2 minute point with HP printer software the only thing left to load.
