Windows 7: Windows freezes for over ~1 minute after each cold boot/reboot

Windows freezes for over ~1 minute after each cold boot/reboot

So ever since I upgraded to a GeForce GTX 460, I've been getting these ~1min long freezes every time my PC just finished loading Windows (either after a cold boot or reboot).

What could be causing this?

EDIT: This didn't happen to me with my old Radeon HD 5770.

I would suspect a driver issue fist thing. Check here for the July 2010 version: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Main - Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-Bit; 2nd - Windows Server 2008 R2

I'd be inclined to agree with Jonathan. If it turns out that the nVidia driver is not the issue, check to be sure you have all the old ATi stuff cleaned out, especially CCC.:)
