Default vista / win 7 issues

Hi,

I recently added win7 / vista to my computer. The issue I am having is it takes a minimum of at least 4 minutes to boot up. When I push power up button I get the system count and then I get a curser in top left hand corner of my screen that sits there for 3 minutes before I get a message of "program not found skipping autocheck" and then my system boots up. What is causing this and why does it take so long?

thx
