If it is only the start up that takes a long time, but then it works fine you should go to start/run and tipe in msconfig
then click on the startup tab and deselect everything except antivirus.
then reboot the machine. a window will open up about the utility being used put a check in the box so it doesent tell you again and you should be starting up quite a lot quicker.
you could probably do with some more ram as well

How to disable/enable Microsoft Windows startup programs


In this guide I will show you how to enable or disable startup programs in Microsoft Windows. Disabling startup programs can help your computer boot up faster and remove some of that garbage that clusters your desktop when you first boot up your computer.

In Windows go to Start and click Run. In the Run box type "msconfig". You will now get a new window that opens up like below,

g33k4u_1.gif

Click the "Startup" tab. In this tab you will get a list of programs that will launch when Windows starts up. The more programs that start up, the slower your machine will be. You can speed up your computer boot process by disabling unnecessary programs. To disable a program, uncheck the box next to the program you wish to not startup. Some examples of unnecessary programs are Itunes, Google Talk, Skype, software updater programs or any other programs that you don't wish to be started when Windows opens.

Alternatively, you can enable certain programs to startup when Windows boots. Just check the box next to the program you wish to startup.

Make sure to hit the "apply" button once you are done!

I hope this article was informative.

Regards,
G33k

Sounds like you are running out of ram for the program. Try upgrading to some more ram in your system. Windows xp recommends minimum 512k of memory to run.

It takes my PC a very long time to boot up, what can i do?



If you have installed any softwares recently it might slow down the pc as many softwares will install a startup file in order to start faster. You can shut these programs from starting up when the pc starts.
I put 2 steps to resolve this in order of simplicity.

Remove icons from the Startup folder
Some programs open with a shortcut icon in the startup folder (Startup icons). Use the following steps to show any startup icons that might be hidden and remove startup icons from the startup folder:
NOTE: Removing items from the Startup folder does not uninstall the software program.
1. Right-click the Start button, and click Explore . The Windows Explorer window displays with Start Menu already selected.
2. Click the plus sign ( + ) next to Programs .
3. Click Startup . The shortcut icons are listed in the right pane of the window.
4. To show any hidden icons, click Tools , click Folder Options , and click the View tab.
5. Click Show hidden files and folders (Windows XP/ME) or Show all files (Windows 98), and click OK .
6. Click an unwanted startup item in the right pane of the window and drag it to a blank area on the Windows desktop. Release the mouse button to drop the icon onto the desktop.
7. Continue dragging unwanted icons until all unwanted startup icons are on the desktop. Click Yes to any window that display asking to confirm the removal of a read-only file.
8. Close Windows Explorer and restart the computer for the changes to take effect. Delete the startup icons that were moved to the desktop after you are satisfied with the way the software programs are working.
If you find that a particular software program should not have been removed from the Startup folder, double-click the startup menu item to open the Startup window. Then drag the icon from the desktop back into the Startup window.
