If none of those make any difference, it could be time for a good Registry cleaner: click here

What maintenance do you normally do

What AV, Firewall and other Anti-Malwear Programs are you running.

Sorry for the delay, watching the end of NICS!

type into run...
then uncheck the programs under start up
it will ask for restart
upon restart a system configuration box will pop up
put a tick in the box bottom left corner and then ok.

i use this
click here
as alternative to msconfig
once youve downloaded and installed the app,it resides in the control panel(start up)

check the entries
HKLM & HKCU,uncheck them and thats it.

Are you running the latest version of Zone alarm?
If yes.there have been a few problems with this version causing slow boot up,hanging on the welcome screen.
