AVG 8 taking long time to load at start up

Are others finding that AVG 8 takes longer to load at start up? I find it is taking about 2 minutes to load which is certainly slower than AVG 7.5.

that it has more features or is more bloated depending on your view. Hence it takes longer to get it up and running.

It looks as if the new version of AVG is far from trouble-free:

I have AVG8 on 3 home pc's since its release and had no trouble at all so far, it does seem bloated but it is not taking anything like 2 minutes to load on any of them,I find the email checking side annoyingly slow, but I think that the reason people are having problems is that they are not removing AVG7.5 completely first before installing AVG8, I think this is the way to go.

I installed it over 7.5 so I suppose I am stuck now if removing 7.5 is the solution.

and have not had any issues to worry me. May take a bit slower to load and the safe search takes a second or so but I think it's fine.
