hi and welcome

removing alot of the programs at boot will increase load time
so

start>in the search box type >msconfig > go to startup tab > remove any programs YOU have instlaled at you dont want to boot > click ok and reboot

disk defrag

start > searhc box > disk defragmenter > run this program on C:/ .... will help speed up pc

disk cleaner

start > search box > disk cleaner > run this on c:/ again to clean up junk

try this as a start point

shut down can be altered via the registrry but lets start with booting lol
