Are there any ways for a faster boot up speed in Vista Premium?

My current boot time is 2 mins 30 seconds and i am using Avast Internet Security and Iobit Security 360 (Free Edition) at boot up.

I have 4GB Ram and Vista Premium takes about 1GB of memory.

If you don't mind me asking, what difference does it make how long it takes to boot?

The faster the OS loads up, the faster you can get started. Also, is it true Windows 7 is faster to boot than Vista?

Does it really matter if it takes one minute or two minutes? I have computers that boot in less than a minute and others that probably take 3-5 minutes (I say probably, because i don't sit and watch them boot). it doesn't matter how long it takes a system to boot - what matters is how it runs once it does boot.

I you don't exercise daily, it may be a good time to do 50 push-ups while computer is loading...
...or call your Mom to say "Hello"...
...or do dishes....
...or finally dust your desk off....
