Spends 80 seconds loading after fixmbr

I recently did a fixmbr (with a scratched CD, but it seems to run fine) because I used to have a bootloader (GRUB), but I don't need it anymore.
Windows boots as it's supposed to, the problem is that it spends 80 seconds loading.

What could be causing it?

Can you be a bit more specific? Where in the boot process does it spend the most time?

You can also run BootViz to see where the boot process is spending it's time.

You can download it from here: http://www.majorgeek...oad.php?det=664

I mean where you see the big logo and the repeating progress bar (You know, the kind that tells you nothing about the progress, it just keep repeating).
I'll try the program and post the news.
I keep seeing version numbers with 1337 in them, I can't help but think that it's done deliberately.

Edit: Boot time has returned to normal.
Do you think the fact that my system harddrive had 5 GBs free space (out of 240 GB) had anything to do with it?
Because I've formatted another harddrive and moved a lot of stuff to it before the reboot.

I would think 5GB of free space should be more than enough, but who can argue with success :)
