It sounds like something has been added to your startup programs that is killing boot time and probably a lot of other things as well.
Microsoft does actually have something that may help you with this.
Perform a clean startup to determine whether background programs are interfering with your game or program

The instructions there should help determine if I am right or not.

After that much time, most of your system drivers would have been updated, and possible new versions of your apps have been released. You could always us msconfig or CCleaner to check on your start up items, but a fresh install wouldn't hurt, either.

A boot time that slow is more than just installation age though. Something is definitely interfering with his startup.. anyhow either of our two suggestions should help point out if that is the case.

A fresh reinstall most times does wonders. And if you want to invest a little, get a 60GB SSD for the OS (if that is a desktop). Get a clean installation ISO from here: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life
