What OS are u running? Yes, try virus scan. How much stuff do you think your pc needs at start-up; this can be an issue.

If you are running 98,ME or XP go to run and type msconfig press enter then go to the start up tab and if you have thinghs like office, realplayer and things that don't have to be running all the time untick them and press ok and that will stop them loading every time you boot up they will only start when you open them.
