Have you installed any softwares that loads at the start? The more application that requires to load piror to the load of the profile it will get slower and slower. You can use "Autoruns" which you can download from microsoft page to check what is listed under Logon or alternatively check through Windows Defender, there should be a listing of services that runs at the start.

Hi,

This can be also due to a corrupted profile and this is very common with vista. Will you try to create another user (thus a profile) and try to logon with that.

If the problem persists you might want to check the installed software too. Then use the MSConfig and try to eliminate some or all startup programs one-by-one and  "find the culprit" :)

You might like to run "perfmon /rel" over Start buttton >>  "Start Search"  field and run the monitor. This will show you any disruptive shutdowns, H/W failures etc.

Cheers,
K.

I can't create another user because my profiile is linked with many things and I am afraid I can loose some.

Yup then it is definitely a Profile Corruption problem. You can use Transfer wizard or you can directly copy your data to a new account. This is the best solution.
