Usually you'll know if you create another account and those things you have problems with in the original account work there.

There could be a number of things which cause slow bootups for example

1. Too many programs starting up with Windows (Check MSConfig for this)
2. Too many un-needed programs installed
3. Machine isn't upto date with Windows updates
4. If on a laptop ensure you dont have the wifi on whilst booting
5. Machine could be infected with malicious things

Also try this to resolve Outlook issue:

1. Run a repair of the Office suite from Programs & Features
2. Create a new local mail profile for Outlook
3. Again ensure all Windows updates are installed.

do a clean boot with msconfig :
in the startup tab, click disable all, and reboot to test

also - is this a recent problem?  then an update, or install can be the cause
a system restore can help you out quickly then
