Lately, I've noticed a substantial delay following the black scrolling loader screen and the "Welcome" screen; it's approximately 10-15 seconds. A few weeks ago, I timed the entire boot sequence (post POST) to be 15 seconds...I haven't installed anything new that I recall...any ideas what would be doing this?

EDIT: There is hard disk activity...I also looked through my System Restore points and I haven't installed anything...
