Lately vista is taking forever to start.
It gets to the screen with the green progress bar that say Microsoft under it, then the screen goes black. It sits on a black screen for 5 minutes or maybe a bit more sometimes, and then finally it loads. I think one time it was more like 9 minutes.
The last 2 times I started it, it had the 5 minute delay
In the event viewer, both times, you see the event: "The Windows Security Center Service has started"
and then the next entry is 5 minutes later, "Performance counters for the WmiApRpl (WmiApRpl) service were removed successfully. The Record Data contains the new values of the system Last Counter and Last Help registry entries."
I don't know if that has anything to do with the delay, but that's all I have right now.
