Kaspersky Internet Security 2013. Slow to start.

From entering my password at start-up to the appearance of the KIS icon in the task bar usually takes about a minute but often takes up to two minutes. It takes several more seconds before the "Protection enabled" pop-up appears. Is this slowness normal? I don't remember previous versions doing this.

It is one of the reasons why I have got rid of Kaspersky. There are numerous reports on the net about this problem. Regrettably it appears to be "normal" - more like sub-normal.

Thanks, Woolwell. I hadn't thought of the obvious action of looking on the net! I'll have a look if only to commiserate with fellow sufferers. I like Kaspersky but this problem plus the fact that it's a pain to install is putting me off.
