Windows 7: Boot up timing slow?

Boot up timing slow?

hello guys i am new to this forums and i am sure this windows 7 forums can help my problem.
anyways my reboot timing is 147 seconds.
so the problem i have is why does it take so long to boot up my pc?
from the moment i press the ON button button to the time it completes loading my desktop. and the thing that takes soooo long is the Welcome screen. after i log in it, says "Welcome..." then the mouse point turns into this circle thing from vista (not the problem of the icon but how long it takes to boot) and it takes like 40 seconds from the welcome screen to the desktop and desktop takes like 20-30 seconds to load everything.
i just upgraded from vista to 7 yesterday and my vista boot time (from power on to desktop) took me 75 seconds...thats half of the time it takes me to boot my desktop.
any suggestions on how i can speed my laptop booting time??

The last time I timed it, it was around 83 seconds since I have a non-RAID boot drive and RAID data drive, two southbridge chips, and a lot of startup programs.

You can check them all if you like to clear their caches and temp files. It will not hurt anything.

to be extra cautious can i set a restore point before i do the disk clean up (all boxes checked) just in case something happens after?
sorry if i happen to be a noob to this lol

Sure, you can create a restore point before doing it if you would like to. It's always best to lean to the side of being cautious.
