Start the PC, go to start menu-->run, then type "msconfig".
Look around at the boot and services tabs, and disable some software you know and could live without if it didn;t automatically load.
That should speed booting up. If not, and it is several months ago that you installed WIndows, try to reinstall it.
However, do backup all your data before you do that, everything on your Windows partition will be lost in reinstalling.

Computer takes 3 minutes to boot up


There are several reasons for slow boot time, things you should check.
1- How many programs are in startup?Limit startups to only what is needed, the rest can start using manual or delayed.
2-Malware= Try scanning with Malwarebytes its free :)
3-Virus= Run a complete scan of you hard drive there are many free anti virus programs to choose from.
4- Defrag- your drive often at least monthly.... again many freeware programs to choose from.
Doing this maintenance should help the computer run much better and speed up boot time.

Computer startup is very slow, icons take forever to pop up


Next time you can boot up press F8 repeatedly until you get to the Safe Mode text screen. One of the options there is to boot up and create a Boot Log. Do this. It will take even longer to boot but at the end you will have a file that shows everything the PC was doing during the boot. There are probably lots of things that are initializing that you don't really need.

You can disable startup items by running msconfig from your Run box and clicking the Startup tab.

Sounds like you have to many startup programs. Check msconfighttp://www.liutilities.com/products/wintaskspro/processlibrary

Don't download or scan anything they ask but it tells what each processor does so you can manually check which ones you obviously don't need and then uncheck them and choose selective startup.

Your boot time will be much faster. Obviously you want all the neccessary startup files to boot so only uncheck the ones you know you don't need at startup.

I think thats why your screen takes so long to boot.
