There were some windows updates this week could it be trying to install them at start up.

Check in device manager I used to have an unsigned driver that made my computer take about 4 minutes to boot.

Go to Services and disable automatic updates and stop it from running.

Scroll down even further to Windows Defender and do the same with that.Then see if it starts any quicker.
