Now I don't know about Vista,But with XP you just clicked start,Run,Type in msconfig,Ok.start up.Then you would untick any programs that you did not want to start on start up.Then Apply.Ok

You may have your anti-virus running at start up which will slow your computer down,What Anti-Virus do you have,

Hi, You could use WinPatrol to delay some of your startup programs,

Do not delay your Antivirus or Firewall,
