There could be several reasons.

Maybe, there are too many programs launched even if you don't see they're launched because they usually work in background. Often, these programs aren't very useful and are launched when you start up your computer. To minimise the number of programs launched at the startup, go in the Start menu, then click on "Execute..." and type "msconfig". At the top, there is a slot called "Startup", click on it and you'll see all the programs which are launched in the startup. You can then uncheck the unuseful programs.
