Default Re: Windows Live Messenger + Win7 = no love?

For some reason Live Messenger is quite slow on windows 7, after everything else loads on fresh boot, it takes another extra 30 seconds or so for the messenger to start.

With vista it was almost instantaneous, anyone else experiencing the slow down?
I'm having a bit of a problem with build 7229 (not sure if it's evident in RTM) where the Windows networking stack seems to take a long time to load after you log in - the Network status icon in the notification area near the clock has a circle on it for about 30secs-1minute after login - so anything requiring Internet access (Steam, WLM etc) doesn't load until Windows lets them connect to the net.
