You've got too much crap starting when you boot your machine. Run msconfig and on the startup tab disable all/apply/reboot.

apply latest service packs and critical updates from windowsupdate.microsoft.com and let us know if you stil have the problem. is the disk thrashing during this time you are waiting for the desktop?

remove external peripherals except for the mouse, keyboard and the monitor.
reboot the system see if the problem still exist.
do you get alot of popups while online. If yes, better download the freeware that is Adaware from http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=506&file=3&evp=8dbaff7daca8f4b55bf695220993fc0f.
