help! windows takes 6-10 mins to start

hi all,
suddenly window xp is taking 6-10 mins to start up.when i run it in safe mode it starts up immediately. I regularly run c cleaner,windows defender,mcafee ,maleware bytes etc,,, and they detect nothing abnormal.
I've tried several restore points and the results are still the same.
once windows loads it performs normally.
any advice on how to narrow this trouble down is greatly appreciated.

sounds like you need to check what is in your startup. in run, type msconfig, click on startup tab, unselect anything you do not need in startup, restart. If you do not know what something is, search the following list. It will tell you what something is and if it is necessary in startup.

Hello mycybertech. You could try msconfig but I find that a bit complicated so try this instead.
