Windows 7 boots slowly

Hi! My windows 7 installation takes about 4 minutes to boot, I had it for one year. In the beginning it a little less than 2 minutes.

I have eliminated unnecessary startup processes using msconfig but it did not help a lot. Is it normal that boot time slows down with time?

Windows 7 boots VERY slowly.
It was a very slow install and it boots up extremely slow. I'm talking a good 15-16 mins before I reach the desktop. I went from XP to Windows 7. Any ideas?
