I've scoured MacRumors and the Apple discussion pages and found only a few instances of this, and it seems to be a recent issue. I'm trying to be thorough, so bare with me... When I restart, an interesting little process shows up in my Activity Monitor under the name of "update_prebindin". It reads under "Intel" initially...then switches to "PowerPC" only to use more CPU power and RAM. It eats up about half Inactive RAM, then the process disappears, reducing some of the Inactive RAM that was consumed. While this is happening, I can hear disk activity (reading and writing, I suppose). What is this process for, and why does it need to run every single restart? One idea on the Apple Discussion is Shapeshifter code, but I have not used any Unsanity programs. This issue is not thaaaat big a deal, but it does slow me down some from the get-go. The fact that this is a recent "affliction" is also curious. Much Thanks!
