Slow Start-Up

I'm not sure if you can post problems here, but worth a try. While I was playing Portal I got a strange blue screen so I shut down my computer. As I turn it back on it starts up very slow and freezes at the start up windows screen with the glowing windows logo. If I leave it like that for a few min it finally starts up. I can play high end games like MW2 and AoC for hours with no problems but I still have a slow start-up...any ideas why?

More about slow start
  1. It could be any number of issues, more details like full system specs, OS, BSOD codes, etc would be good to know.

    Potential list is OS not updated, missing files/bad registry's, bad drivers, malware, virus, those are the big software candidates.

    Hardware could be bad RAM, bad PSU, bad MOBO, bad CPU so yea.
  2. MSI 785GM-E51 Mobo
    Radeon 4870 VidCard
    4gb DDR3 G.Skill RAM
    750W PSU
    AMD3 2.6 Quard Core Pros
    1TB HDD
    Windows 7 64-bit

    All my temps are fine, all fans running normal
