Laptop taking too long to log in (various stages)

Hello,
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
Michael

Laptop taking a long time to connect to network share, if at all.
For some reason my laptop takes forever to connect to a shared drive on my desktop on my home network. I've tried connecting to it by mapping the drive and through windows explorer and same thing.

Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

Taking very long to eject devices
When I click the eject external device button, it takes about 30 seconds for the pop up window to show up (which gives me the option of selecting which device to eject). Is anyone else also facing this problem?
