Run Idle Tasks to lay out the boot files:
Run %windir%\system32\Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks OK.
Boot without any internet connection. Cable unplugged, wireless disabled.
Boot with no peripherals connected-Ps/2 mouse only.
Disable fast user switching. Use classic log-in. Disable forced auto-login with TweakUI if enabled. Remove any modifications to boot screens if applied.

And, sometimes, disabling Automatic Updates helps.
Let us know about your progress.

I suggested booting without any USB connected devices to check to see if there were hardware/driver issues involved.
Sometimes, having fast user switching enabled, or forcing 'boot-to-desktop' (Autologon) with Tweak UI can cause delays if several user accounts are present.
The link to Black Viper was to help you trims down the background Services that windows loads at start. Another good reference is the Elder Geek: http://www.theelderg...vices_guide.htm
I suggest that you not 'Disable' Services, but just set those you want to control to "Manual." That way if a bad choice has been made, Windows can start the service if it is needed.
The "Run" command I offered initiates a native XP utility that organizes the boot files for most efficient access.
A good cleanup of junk files and a solid defrag often helps as well.

Both the above are stand-alones. No install required. For JkDefrag, unzip and run the Jkdefrag.exe. The executable is all that is needed.
Works on even very full discs. Ugly as sin. Very effective. Writes a log file to its containing folder, so I put it in "My documents," and placed a shortcut on the desktop. Overwrites the file each time, so there is only ever one, but it don't want it on the desktop.
