There is obviously something wrong - Vista should be very responsive with your configuration.

Are you CPU bound? If so, the program 'Process Explorer' from www.sysinternals.com can help track the resource hogger.
Have you got the latest BIOS for your motherboard? (That was my problem ).
Do you get the same problem if you boot in safe mode?
Do you have any IRQ problems
Are there any indications in the event viewer? (Start > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer) In particular look for timeouts on devices like hard drives or cdrom

1. Sorry, but i don't know what means CPU bound
2. Yes, BIOS, drivers, Windows update - all up to date
3. In safe mode Windows boots 2 times more later, but after logging it plays 15-20% faster
4. I think i have'nt any IRQ conflicts
5. At last event viewer - there is very much errors, warnings, informations, audit success, audit failures events REALLY?!!! Also CD-ROM errors. But i don't know what means that counters, near 30 000 - 40 000 errors in general

Open the task manager, set it up so that you can see what programs are using CPU time and also what the disk is doing I/O reads writes ETC..

There is a ton of tools with the task manager to help you find the culprit.
