    How many programs how you run on start-up. The more programs will auto-start the slower your computer will be. And try a virus scan.

    It may be possible that your pc is running a BOOTVIRUS that starts with windows and remains activ until computer shuts down . Run an antivirus program with recent definitions and try to uncheck some start-up utilities - servicies - programs from msconfig or with Regclean .

    Great night guys, this is my first time so please go easy on me, I just want to help:D
    I believe I have the same problem and I found out was the Norton Antivirus, it takes forever to start (after you boot) and dont let me do it anything...
