I experience some odd delay when opening certain applications such as Firefox, Thunderbird and Steam., They start, but with an extra delay.
For example if I fire up Firefox I'll notice disk activity for some seconds and then nothing for 60 secs. After 60 seconds it will resume loading and Firefox would start. The application responds fast after that.

I've tried to uninstall these applications completely and reinstall. I then started them without any addons or profiles that might make it run slow. But I still get these delays. The system is otherwise responsive.
The hardware is fine (I have checked) and I've also tried to completely uninstall my firewall/antivirus/security suite and check if that was the issue, but it wasn't.

As I said this only concerns these three applications (to my knowledge).
The OS, is Vista 64 Business.

I made a post on this forum, but the thread kind of died

Does anyone know a fix for this. it would be greatly appreciated.
