This question is asked many times, and its usually a case of keeping up a maintenance procedure, which some never seem to do.

Have you added or removed any software programmes recently.

Do you do any 'cleaning-up', like running something like CCleaner, defrag or any malware programmes.

Vista can take a long time to start up and shut down which is why I'm gald I moved on to W7 and W8.

It may be a slow loading program or I guess that the laptop is now nearly 5 years old and may need a good clean up.
