Startup group item suddenly loading too slowly

  The Belarussian Mafia 19:44 24 Mar 2004

My Adaptec (now Roxio) Create CD programme has always started up about 20 seconds after all other (about 5) startup group items have finished loading. I assumed it was a quirk of the programme, as the sister programme, Adaptec Easy CD, always loaded quickly. However Norton System works has just started behaving in the same way - i.e. it now appears about 40 seconds after the other items have loaded. Admittedly I have ticked and unticked items in the startup group list a few times in an attempt to minimise the startup time, but I did not anticipate this. Is there perhaps some other explanation?
