PADS Slow Start after New License Was Installed

We received the new 15 year license file a couple of months after our service contract expired. Our license is Mobile Compute (Node Locked) License with Hardware Dongle. The PADS version is V9.1. After installation by using "Mentor Graphics SDD>PADS Licensing Asistance>Install License File, the PADS works without showing expiration warning any more. But it take about six minutes each time for the program to start, both PADS Logic and PADS Layout. Any ideas on how to fix the problem?
