You might want to have a look at what is running at start up. Click "Run" then type "msconfig", sans quotes, uncheck everything that isn't necessary and see if your boot time is faster.

It is just after 7am EDT as I type this. The East Coast is just waking up!

You could also clean out the junk by running disk cleanup and then defrag if you havent already. If you havent done these for a while, that could also be a reason for slow boot. You could also uninstall any prgrams you wont need anymore.

CleanUp! is also a good program to use for getting rid of "junk" files.

Google or http://www.liutiliti...processlibrary/ is your friend. Another way to control Start Up is Mile Lin's StartUpCPL.
