I have noticed that when I first open up IE7, it takes quite a while to open up - and my home page is only Google.
Once its opened, I can surf from one site to another quite quickly and normal. And if I close IE7 down and then open it up again, it seems fine, its just that first time. Why would that be?

I have an internet cleaner which cleans as the last IE page closes, and I also have ATF Cleaner.

I have run scans on Avast. SuperAntispyware and Spybot and all came back with nothing.

I think (not really sure) that this started happening after I installed an HP Printer - but most of the time its switched off.

Any ideas?

It would probably be the fact that Internet Explorer is gathering the data from all of the websites which causes it to be slow; it may take a while to prepare all the correct graphics, audio, etc. from certain websites. And on top of that, it may need to be upgraded, so that would make it even slower on start ups. Try upgrading to Internet Explorer 8 and see if that helps with start up speed.

And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.
