We could try if you provide more information. Recent installations, AV, internet security and antispyware products?

You probably have AVG set to scan at start up,That usually slows down your computer,maybe betterswitching of the start up scan,And either set it to scan at a different time,Or dissable the scan and just run it when you want it to run.

You may also have to many programs running at at start up,Worth checking with msconfig,I have 7 programs running and most are security related.
