    Truth be told, I could prepare an eight course meal and write an english paper in the time it takes my pc to boot up.

    I have all the "good stuff" for spyware --> sb s&d, lavasoft
    antivirus--> bitdefender

    I have no unecessary programs in startup, but I'm not too sure about the services and which ones are important.

    I ran bootvis (20 reps) and that cut it down by about two minutes, but startup time still takes about 15.

    I get the "welcome to windows" screen, and the wallpaper appears, but thats it.

    Any ideas?

    I dont know if this will help, but here is a HijackThis log with startup services:
