    msconfig -> services -> hide all microsoft services -> uncheck these i
    they exist: xaudio, vongo, stllsvr,roxmediad89, installdriver tabl
    manager, cyberlink background, cyberlink task,

    Then click on boot tab ->advanced options -> number of processors 2 -
    maximum memory.

    If still doesnt work then may be something is wrong with your PREFETC
    folder in x:\Windows\Prefetch

    I use System mechanic and it has an option of defragging suc
    files that windows loads on startup... Doing that once in a while keep
    boot time in check... try that one

    I am having the same problem described here, but it takes more than
    half-hour for my machine to reboot. The computer is barely a month old
    and I'm thinking I will have to wipe the disk clean and start all ove
    again. Thank you, Microsoft

    I thought I'd monitor how long it takes me to reboot. One hour, and onc
    rebooted the machine runs slow. Some programs, notably iTunes, freez
    quickly. I've tried removing programs, and have tried a system restor
    to a couple weeks ago. Doesn't help. I'm going to try one more syste
    restore back to the point when I bought the machine, and see if tha
    will work
