Bleeping Computer's Startup Database
Slow boots and logouts can be caused by having too many applications launching on start up. If you have Spybot Search and Destroy, go to Tools and look for "system start up" which will list everything the computer has to do during boot.
You can export this list as a .txt file, print it, and compare the list to BC's Startup Database, which will indicate whether you need the program to launch at boot or not. Many applications have quick launches, for example; these make opening them very fast, but the other side of the coin is that each takes some boot time, as well as use slight computer resources just to run.
You can also use this same Spybot tool to kill applications you do not want running at start up.
