Here's a link that may prove useful to you. And another with specific instructions for running the repair. Before working with the registry, make sure to create a valid backup by running Erunt, available here.
I recommend you begin, however, by running chkdsk (see here and here) to check for corrupt files, then scanning for malware by following these protocols. Also do some system maintenance to improve the performance, at least the following steps. (See here.) And here's a great article that will help you to optimize the health and startup times of your system.
And finally, if you're working with an older system, it's probably time to update the drivers. Tutorial to guide you through that process here. If you're actually getting blue screens with stop error codes, let us know the exact error message and we'll help you to sort it out...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Here's a few tips you can try to fix your slow startup problem. First of all you want to disable any programs that are in the startup menu that you do not absolutely need. There is no sense in waiting for programs to load that you don't use on a regular basis. Or if you are not sure which one is slowing your startup. You can disable them one at a time.
If that did not help, you can disable your Windows sidebar. You'll also want to remove any icons from your desktop that you do not absolutely need. The same goes for your task bar and quick start menu. All of these will slow down your boot time.
Check to make sure your anti virus program is not scanning at startup. Some programs are set to scan. When windows boots, by default. You will also want to do a full anti virus scan to make sure you don't have a worm or any other type of virus that is working in the background slowing your operations down.
The biggest reason for a slow boot time is a corrupt or damaged Registry. The registry will become corrupted from installing and uninstalling programs. Perhaps you have loaded programs onto your new Vista computer and were not compatible and then uninstall them. They leave behind files, which Windows tries to reference on startup. Since they are no longer on your computer. Your system goes through a long search trying to find them. You need to clean and optimize your Windows registry to eliminate any bad or orphaned files.
You can do this manually if you are an experienced computer technician. It is not recommended for most users. Windows does not have a built-in tool for repairing, cleaning, or optimizing your registry. You will need to download and run a third-party registry repair program to do this.
A good piece of software that will do this for you with a click of the mouse is a wise investment for any computer. You will have it for years to come, and can schedule it to do weekly maintenance. This will keep your PC fully optimize and running fast. It's like giving your computer a tuneup.
