  1. I'm really not sure what kind of issue this falls under, but my computer seriously takes that long to load anything. It is:
    Microsoft Windows XP
    Home Edition
    Version 20002
    Service Pack 3

    76477-OEM-0047505-48737

    Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4CPU 2.40GHz
    2.39 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM

    Check what are the programs that load along with the OS and disable any of those that are not necessary to do that, sometimes that can make the computer to boot slower than normal.

    I'm thinking that this computer has been running for years without much trouble till now. Is this correct?

    Press win+r button and type
    sfc /scannow
    after that try
    sigverif and
    driverquery

    Use MSCONFIG to create temporary configurations for booting - -much like Safe Mode, but you get to choose what loads or doesn't
