Very Slow PythonWin 2.6.1 Startup on Windows XP SP3

PythonWin used to startup in a second or two on my Windows XP desktop. 
now it takes around 20 seconds.  I tried turning off Google Desktop 
indexing and Norton AV, but it still takes a long time to start.  Other 
random apps such as Firefox 3.0 (which I just updated to) and 
Thunderbird have normal startup times.

Does anyone have suggestions on how to speed up Python startup?
