Windows 7: Laptop taking too long to log in (various stages)

Laptop taking too long to log in (various stages)

My Toshiba Sattelite has recently started to have a few problems. When I boot it up, it takes about 5 minutes to get past the Welcome/Please Wait screen. After that there is a black screen which takes a further 5-10 minutes to get past. I would appreciate any help and suggestions.
Thank You
