at what point does it take the longest to load? POST start up? While the windows load screen is up?

Have you cleaned the registry lately, use a decent registry cleaner, and then once you have done that do not forget to compact the registry.

i did my weekly maintnence yesterday which includes a scan of these programs:
ad-aware se personal
disk cleanup
disk defragmenter
mcafee virus scan
registry booster
spybot s&d
window washer
windows defender

i've gotten rid of all the startup programs i don't need along with some services but i don't know why its going slow.
and at the windows boot screen it stays there for about 15-20 seconds.
a whole system re-do is not an option. i plan on never reinstall my operating since i bought my computer 5 months ago.

Yeah, try illiminating some start-up processes, but it down to the bare minimum. Also, it just may be your hard drive going bad, and somehow it is not being detected. Hope this helps!
