    This happened on another computer, so I thought it might've just been the computer itself, but now it's doing it on a brand new computer. What's the problem?

    Well, here's what happens. Whenever I turn my computer on, and it didn't do this for a long time, it just started doing it recently, I go open up Mozilla Firefox, and it takes roughly 5~10 minutes to load it up. Heck, every application and program does that until I get something to actually start up. Now, on my old computer, it didn't start doing that until about a month and a half after installing Windows 7. This time, it's only been about 15 days. Now I have an application/program that starts up automatically when Windows 7 logs in(2 separate accounts on the computer), and it loads up just fine. But anything else, it refuses to load them for a good amount of time. It gets really irritating.

    Does anyone know what's causing this, and if there is anything I can do to fix it?

    Unfortunately, it didn't help. But for some reason, it's not all prorams.

    (just examples)
    List of programs that start up fine:
    Google Chrome
    Skype 4.1
    XFire
    Winamp

    List of programs that don't start up very well:
    M. Firefox
    M. Thunderbird
    mIRC
    Zune Software
    Internet Explorer
    Trillian Astra

    I honestly have no idea why it's doing this. I even ran chkdsk, and it's still doing this...
