If I enter the wrong password, it rejects the password immediately but on entering the right password it takes a longer time to validate it. One the first login, this is possibly due to the startup process but it happens even when I login after standby. Why does this happen?

I am using Windows 7 Professional x64.

What does the computer show while you're claiming it's validating the login? – Stephen Jennings Jan 8 '11 at 9:19
nothing. the password field is frozen, then after a couple of seconds it logs in. – Pulkit Sinha Jan 9 '11 at 18:17
