Default Windows is starting up.......

Everytime I boot up or reboot my comp gets stuck on Windows is starting up... for at least 5 minutes.

Anyone know how to fix this problem?

I tried going into msconfig, but that doesn't do anything i don't think.

Help

did you install anything before that happened?
probably a corrupted file/program

for the msconfig, you set the timeout: to 30 seconds or less?

try this also
right click My Computer, go to properties
go to Advanced
go to Startup and Recovery
change the time of display list of operating systems

but im pretty sure its probably a program that is causing it
run adware and spyware programs, anti-virus also

in msconfig, go to the tab boot.ini

disable all the options
and put it to 10 seconds
see if that helps

also try this
in msconfig -> general
select normal startup
