    Slow startup can be caused by any number of things. If the PC behaves normally after that slow startup, it may be due to conflicting software or services that are trying to get started when the PC starts. I have seen this if multiple antivirus products are installed and running on a PC. If the PC continues to run slowly after that long, slow startup, it can still be due to a software conflict or a program running amok and using 100% of the system resources, or it can be a hardware problem.
