Default Laptop slow boot up at startup... help please

Ok... Now I have very limited things that are on my start up list. This just started happening about a month ago. I've guess I gave up and have just been dealing with the problem. When I boot up my laptop. Once it gets past the windows xp screen it loads up the blue screen where you log in. After I'm past that... My desktop background comes up and I have to sit for about two minutes before I get loaded into the desktop. Its driving me crazy!

I've tried the following with no success.

1. Checked the start up list and only have 3 things on boot up.
2. Ran a adaware check.
3. Did a system restore.
4. Performed a defrag.

No luck, no love... any help
