Do this: Start>Run and type in MSCONFIG: go to the startup tab. Disable all the stuff in the startup menu except for your antivirus, spyware, and systray. I will bet you have 20 or 30 things loaded at startup!!!!! Windows boot time is extended if you have a whole bunch of peripheral components in your system as well. 4 secs ain't bad dude!!!!!
