Defragment your HD and see if that helps any. You could also try this: Start>control panel>system>advanced settings>restart settings (bottom one of the 3 settings)>under your operating system you will see two numbers. Change them to half of what they are now and press ok. Keep doing that until you like the speed of the shutdown and startup of your system. My two numbers are: 3 and 5
