Default Slow boot, and shutdown

One of my old systems that I use occasionally takes for ever to boot and shut down, sometimes 1-3 Minutes to boot, and 5+ to shutdown.

AMD XP 2600+
Abit NF7-S Mobo
GeForce 4 MX400 64MB
Segate 60GB HD
1GB PC2700 DDR

Everything else runs totally fine from what I have seen. Is this a sign of a dying or bogged down hard drive? Because when I used to use the system as my main system I don't ever remember it taking so long to boot and shutdown. I don't use the system for anything other than getting on the net or writing a paper. And its loaded with Spyware, Virus, and Firewall Protection. Even though protection like that won't keep everything out, it should keep enough off that it shouldn't slow the system down like this. Any Ideas?
ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe
Intel Core i7 2600k
16GB DDR3 G-Skill Ripjaws
1TB 7200 Segagte Drive
eVGA GeForce 570
Samsung Blu-Ray Drive
Antec 850 Watt PSU
Windows 7 Professional
