It takes too long to boot

Everytime I start my computer it seems to take forever. There are alot of things that open each time I start, but i'm not sure what is necessary and what's not. Any suggestions would be great!

Click on Start>All Programs and then see what you have in your startup. A lot of programs when installed want to start with your system and that slows your system down at startup. You can go to Start>Run and type msconfig and click ok. Then when the box opens click on the startup tab. There is a list of everything that starts when your system boots. If you don't know which ones you can uncheck just post back here with whatever is in there and we can help you with the rest.
