Windows 7: Need Help, my computer takes 20 min to startup!

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Need Help, my computer takes 20 min to startup!

Hi Guys,
Lately, every time I turn my computer on, it truly takes 15-20 min to start before I can work on it! Do you have an idea on what can cause that?
Thanks in advance,

Have you ran Virus and Malwares scans?

Which Antivirus and Firewall programs do you have installed?

Have you tried performing a Clean Boot?

Have you ran Windows Disk Cleanup Tool, lately?
