i use it for cleaning up my computer but after you install it you can click on the far right button concerning 'startup items'
uncheck boxes for programs such as messenger, skype, 4od, iplayer, limewire, utorrent etc but do not uncheck any programs that you are not sure of what they do. most slow boots are to do with people installing programs and not unchecking the box that says 'run when windows starts'.
there is a method for deleting 'prefetch' in startup too, but i would suggest you try the first method i mentioned first, as the 'prefetch' option can cause all sorts of problems if you are not 100% sure what you are doing..
ncleaner is a great program anyway, you should definitely use it to clean up your computer, although when i first ran it, it deleted everything in My Received Files, so copy everything out of there to somewhere else first. :)

uninstall any energy management software provided by dell and then check.if the issue is not resolved then the issue is with the converter board as it is heating up.

This may be a battery power monitor issue. Try disabling the "Mircosoft ACPI- Compliant Control Method Battery" device. This is located in Control Panel-->System-->Hardware Tab-->Device Manager-->Batteries. Had similar problem with 2 Acer Aspire series laptops (diff models). 2 and 3 year old. Original batteries (both still hold charges for 1.5 hrs of normal usage). Running WinXP, one with SP2 and other had SP3. Both came in the last month with slow jerky TPAD function and nearly non responsive keyboard access. Checked the usual; virus, spyware, hijacking, driver conflict etc. Cloned drive and factory installed..still same problem with kb & mouse. However an external USB keyboard and mouse functioned normally (no lag). Noticed with Battery removed kb & mouse was normal. Finally found disabling ACPI control battery device resolved this issue while allowing laptop to run on either battery or AC.

If the issue occurs in the safe mode, then I'm suspecting a failure of the LCD backlight. (It warms up and quits) Also see if video stays on using an external monitor. If it does, then the LCD is most likely failing.
If video goes out on an external monitor as well, then the Video card is failing due to overheating. Make sure all vents are free of dust (Clean with canned compressed air) and the all fans are functional (Run the fan test in diagnostics) If fans check up, then video card is failure point. If fans fail diags, replace affected fan 1st
