Hi dtaylor726! Welcome To G2G!

A lot of times, this problem is caused by things running in the background on your computer.

Lets take a look at what is starting up when your computer does. Please download HiJackThis from HERE . Install it, and once installed run the program. On the first screen click on Open the Misc Tools Section...On the next screen, click on the Generate StartupList log button and post a copy of the log here. You need not check either of the boxes next to this button.
