Default Boot Time..

It takes my PC a full 62 seconds to boot, with Avg Antivirus, Spysweeper, Microsoft Antispyware, and Apc Powerchute as my only start up programs running. I timed it from when the power button was pushed, til all programs had loaded, with no cd's dvds in drives. I ran Bootvis prior to this...
I am wondeering if this is good or slow? Also, maybe some other people with similar systems could tell me their boot times? Thanks for any replies. ( yes i have nothing better to do...)

Depends on what you mean by "boot." My computer takes around 35ish seconds to get to the login screen, then another 5-10 to finish the start up after I log on. However, it has SP2, before that it took only around 20 sec to get to the login. Try defragging, and disabling start-up scans for your antivirus, if you feel comfortable with that. Also, disable unneeded things in msconfig (if you haven't already done so). And try a "bare-bones" boot, with only critical start up items and see how log it takes windows alone to boot up.
