If your computer is slow when starting you may have too many programs starting up when you boot up your computer. Almost all applications you install want to startup when Windows loads. If you allow all these startups, they will compete for and use system resources resulting in poor performance and a slow system. Many of these programs are not needed and disabling them can save resources and improve performance as they are available from Start > Programs or an icon on the desktop if needed. To disable unnecessary startups, use a free Startup Manager like those listed in this topic: Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware.

There are also suggestions in regards to unnecessary services when can also contribute to slowness and startup issues
