Windows 7: Slow Browsers Startup

Slow Browsers Startup

Hi, Recently I have noticed that IE9 and Firefox 5 take a really long time to load up on startup, whereas Opera loads up instantly on startup. I have tried disabling all add-ons for both these browsers, as well as disabling all startup entries to see if these have an effect. I have also ran CCleaner, defragmented my hard drive and registry as well as cleaned them. There isnt a problem with my windows 7 startup as it is usually loaded fully in 5 seconds of the welcome screen, with all startup entries enabled, there just seems to be something clashing with both these browsers on the first startup, after the first startup these browsers load instantly within clicking their shortcuts. Help please!
