When you get into windows go to Run type MSCONFIG press enter go to startup tab top right. There you will see box's with ticks, these are all the programs that start at boot. Most do not need to run at boot, you can remove ticks from box's to stop the running. You need to leave Anti-Virus and Firewall running. Any you remove can be put back after if you find you need them. after Computer reboots, you will see a box put a tick in the little box so it does not come up next time you boot. If you alter MSCONFIG this box will resurface

Just a thought. A friend of mine was having a similar problem and it turned out her hard drive was on the blink. Might be worth looking into.
