Not sure if this is relevant to your case, but at my job I use a Windows
machine with an antivirus product from Trend Micro. The antivirus
program increases Emacs's startup time with my configuration from 5
seconds to 60+ seconds - a huge increase. When profiled, almost all the
time is spent in `require' and `load'.

I suspect this is from its behavioral analysis features but I've tried
adding Emacs to its various exception lists without luck. The only thing
that restores the lower startup time is to completely kill the antivirus
program, which is unacceptable, so I just live with it.
