It may depend on your OS and the number of applications you have "open" when you choose to restart. You can check this by going to Task Manager (ctrl+alt=del keys) and viewing open apps. which you can then choose to "end task" - this should help.

Use "msconfig" to limit what starts up - go to START - RUN - type MSCONFIG - STARTUP Tab and untick all "unecessary" startup items.
