We have moved an in house web package from Windows 2003 server to Windows 2008R2. On Windows 2003 the service starts in seconds. On Windows 2008R2 the service takes about 3 minutes to start. It always starts but take a a very  long time to start.

Any Ideas as to why  it takes so long to start or how to speed up the start of the service?

So going through WOW64 delays the start of a service?

I can see a delay but a delay of minutes?
