A couple weeks ago I used "restore point" to fix sluggish performance. It worked, excpept for start up...still takes around 7-10 minutes to boot up.

Try using the recovery console. Use the Fixmbr and fixboot commmands, it should work.

DO NOT USE FIXMBR!!!! It has ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING to do with how fast your computer boots into windows, and could render the drive useless if you use it. Fixboot will not work either. What I would like to ask is do you have Norton Internet Security, Norton System Works or McAfee Security Center installed on your PC?

your startup list might also have a whole buncha programs in it...that's causing your boot up to take so long...
