Loooong start-up for Windows on Medion Laptop-Help

  buel 20:59 25 Jul 2008

Hi, when i start up my Medion Laptop it takes the following to start up:
2min 15sec to reach the User menu.
2min 45sec to reach the Desktop screen
7min 25sec to be able to use Internet Explorer.

Is this right?
Are there any steps i can take to speed things up?
All answers will be greatly recieved...

Yes - when did you last do some basic PC housekeeping - uninstall all those programs you never use, use CCleaner, defrag the HDD, run a full AV and anti-malware scan?

Which os? As above a good clean up and virus scan can work wonders. How much space is left on the hard drive?

When it has finished booting how many icons are there in the bottom right corner?
