Need help on my laptop startup time problem! My laptop is G74SX with 3D supported. The problem is after i press the power button to turn on the laptop, it got stuck in the black screen for a while between the Windows logo and the Windows welcome screen. I'm talking about black screen for 3 mins after the startup Windows logo disappeared and before the Windows welcome screen appear. This problem is really annoying. I think even if my hdd is normal 7200rpm it can not be that slow for the start up. there must be a problem. I noticed that there's maybe the cause of the problem: Kaspersky Internet Security, I set my screen refresh rate at 120 MHz all the time.

Please help!
