My pc takes over 6 minutes to boot up and be ready to use,please help.It runs 512 DDR ram on a 2.5 ghz pentium 4.The start up folder only has 1 item in it.

More clues please? Like "how long have you had this trouble"

What version of Windows ?... Have you changed any hardware recently like the motherboard or CPU?

You say the startup folder, or do you mean what shows in msconfig? I may not have an answer but this will kick your query up the list again and if you can flesh out a bit more detail it will help others solve this problem with you.

im guessing due to your fairly up to date specs you have xp,if so:

click start/run and type msconfig

untick everything except your AV and firewall and restart the computer.should start a bit faster.

try a disc cleanup disc check and defrag
