Some possible reasons why slow in boot are:
1. low memory - add some more ram;
2. too many start up programs - remove unnecessary ones. Go to Start, Run, type "msconfig", OK, go to Startup tab. listed are the programs that run on start, remove any that you feel that you don't need such as updates, nero, etc.
3. Virus - scan for any virus and delete/quarantine;
3. Malwares - use malware scanner such as AdAware.
4. low hard disk space - delete unnecessary files/folders, temporary. Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup, check all that you don't need or want, OK, OK;
5. Increase your swap file - right click on My Computer, click on Properties, click on Advanced tab, click on Settings, click on Advanced tab, Change button, tick on Custom size, type on Initial and Maximum same value say 1024, OK, OK, OK.
You may also want to download, install and use tweaking utilities such Norton Disk Doctor, WinOptimizer, Regclean, BootVis and others of the like.

Clean cookies ,history,and uninstall anything that may of caused it to slow down. You probably have a trojan causing you problems. Update your antivirus and reboot your computer into safemode and then run a full system scan if your computer will let you do it in safe mode. If it won't let you run a scan in safe mode run it after you reboot . If you don't have a spyware program install it. Oh by the way if your hard drive is almost full your computer will run slower and could boot up slower. If this is the case burn some of your music and pictures off onto a cd or DVD to make room on your hard drive. Uninstall some programs that you don't use. Just put on your computer what you use most often. Don't overload it. Why weight it down with things you never use.

Tips for a great answer:

im assuming you have the recovery disk
Restart the computer and press the pause/break key on the keyboard.
This key will slow down the boot process and allow you to see the motherboard BIOS access key that you'll need to press in order to access the motherboard BIOS.
Press the respective motherboard access key and check the motherboard BIOS for a boot sequence.
Change the settings in the boot sequence so the primary boot device or the first boot drive is the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Insert the system recovery disc into the disc drive.
Restart the computer and allow it to boot up before doing anything.
A black screen should show up with the words Press any key to boot from disc CD/DVD.
Press a key to have the system boot from the recovery disc.
Allow the system to load.
Follow the on-screen instructions on how to install the rest of the operating system.
There are many different settings for you to choose.
If the operating system is just a little out of whack, you can choose to repair it.
The system recovery disc will contain important drivers and software for all the components connected to the computer system.
If you do not have a system restore disc you can search the Internet for drivers and software that are packaged for your specific eMachines model.
Restore the BIOS to their default settings so the hard drive is primary boot sequence.
This is an optional step.
You can leave the CD-ROM drive as the primary boot drive, but it will slow down the startup process by a few seconds.
hope this helps
