Well...I would

 

  a.  Get a SSD

  b.  Eliminate the junk that came loaded on the system...via a clean install of Win 7.  Alternately...go through Add/Remove Programs and remove unwanted fluff, one program at a time.

  c.  Uninstall every Symantec application and use Microsoft Security Essentials and the Windows Firewall.  It's probably Symantec that slows your boot time down

  d.  Use a startup manager (e.g., Startup Control Panel - http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml ) and then stop routine programs from running at boot.  Generally...the only items (other than Microsoft/Windows) that should be running at boot would be java, your AV, and not much of anything.  Any program that is merely there for "updating" should not be running at startup.  Any unknown item...needs to be examined more closely by you...to find out what it is and why it's in your startups.

Cool, I'll look into doing some of those things and you did mention the SSD... well, i've tried the SSD's (I have plenty). However, the laptop itself (by default) will not allow me to create the ISO except to a CD-R (the one's I have are 526mb, which isn't enough space to create it). Any application recommendations over the control panel itself? Thanks again. I really do appreciate it!

 

PS:

This is also my brother's laptop. He doesn't care or know much about computers unless it's fast and it doesn't get infected but I shall un-install the Microsoft Security Essentials. Also, we don't have the CD-R containing the original copy of Windows 7.
