Toshiba laptop takes way too long start, probably close to 10 minutes. I tried to limit the start-up programs, and even check for mal/spy-ware, but the effect lingers. How can decrease the boot time for this laptop?

I'm sorry, my first pc I've owned did the same. I'd have to power it on and go make lunch to pass the time. Try working with this thread by quietman7. It's full of great tips and should help with your computers performance and take some time off your boot up. I'd run through everything that's applicable to you and post back after. I'm sure there's even more that can be done to speed up your boot, but this is a great place to start.

What you need is a Boot monitor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boot_monitor Microsoft has a boot monitor app, but I can't recall the name right now?

Please check the hard drive status (built-in or manufacturing support site or free HDTune/GSmart for windows) and hardware temperature using HWMonitor or Speedfan.
