Slow startup

My laptop takes 10-15 minutes to present me with a login icon. How should I troubleshoot this?

Hi skyhawk,
if you type 'msconfig' in the run box you'll see the system config' box appear on the screen. Click 'startup' and uncheck any programs which you don't want or don't need to start up straight away. (see screenshot).
If you don't already I'd try using a cleaner such Ccleaner CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download which is free and great at what it does..

A great guide which has tips on cleaning 7 as well as a whole load of other stuff can be found here: - The TweakGuides Tweaking Companion (again it's free)
