After looking into this a bit, it looks like this solution seemed to work for many people!
- when windows has loaded,
- go to start>run> type "msconfig"

- go to the "boot.ini" tab and deselect the option "/SAFEBOOT"

Also, take a look at these sites for more good information and troubleshooting tips:

I hope this helps!
