Start>run>type msconfig

Go to start up and uncheck anything you don't want starting up.

Also, USB devices can slow boot times too.

Another thing that can help (basically doing what MSConfig does) is by using the trial for Tune Up Utilities.

Here is the link to the Download.com page for the 30 day trial - Linked

Follow the directions on there, fill out the quesionare, and your set. It will check out your computer, and see what can be disabled from start-ups, what can be defragmented, cleaned up from your HDD, etc.

Hope I Helped
