long to bootup windows when at the boot screen when you fisrt start the
computer. if someone can tell me how to make it boot faster, i would be so
grateful.

Follow this:

#12 can be of particular help.
Note: be sure not to disable anything important.
Many shorten the boot time and generally speed the computer by
disabling essential items usually leaving the computer vulnerable.
Do NOT sacrifice security for boot speed.

What is your definition of a long time? My system boots to the desktop in
about 50 seconds. It would take a little less time, but I have some stuff
that starts at bootup. Unless your machine is taking more than a minute or
two to boot, I wouldn't mess with it.

Get a tool called BootVis. Make sure you read the instructions carefully.

Cheers.
