Acer 5742Z takes 5 minutes to boot from start-up

Am running Google Chrome and wondering if this is part of the problem. As I use Gmail do I have to use Google as a Search Engine. Once the machine is up and running speed is satisfactory although not as quick as it used to be.

These are good tutorials on using msconfig in XP, Vista or Windows 7:
How to use msconfig in Windows XP

How to use msconfig in Windows 7

Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Reboot and see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable several items at a time till you find the culprit.

If no, boot to Safe Mode again, start msconfig and click on the Services tab.
Check the Hide All Microsoft Services box, record what is currently starting then click the Disable All button.
Again, do a regular boot, see if it runs normal.
If yes then use msconfig to enable services till you find the culprit.

Once you've found the culprit, uninstall it or find out how to eliminate it from your system.
Simply disabling it in msconfig is a temporary fix at best.
Enable everything else you disabled.

See if this helps you.
