    more important question:
    does it actually finish booting and load windows, or just restart again?

    if you're like me, the most efficient way to ease the worry of boot times, is to only reboot about every 2 weeks or so

    Try getting rid of unused fonts? (C:\Windows\Fonts)
    Those all have to be loaded at startup....
    if you have more than a 1000 then that will mess up your startup times
