Lots of different possibilities - do below for starters..

Malware is possible. These two small freebies from MalwareBytes often find what anti-virus programs miss. Run AdwCleaner first:

AdwCleaner:

Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Run the "Scan", followed by the "Clean & Repair".

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free trial" which can be stopped afterwards if you wish).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

Next stop any unnecessary background programs from running during Startup (type msconfig in the Run box).

Go to Task Manger (use Ctrl-Alt-Del keys( and see if anything is hogging CPU or RAM.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you're running a Pentium D, your system isn't going to be excessively fast. To speed boot time, disable all the unnecessary startup apps. We can't tell you which ones because we don't know what you have. Try installing CCleaner-Slim. Click Tools > Startup, then at the lower right, click "Save to text file...". Save the file to your desktop, open it, then copy/paste the contents of text file in your next response.

If you're running a 64 bit version of Windows 7, it wouldn't hurt to bump up your RAM to 8 gigs.

If you have a standard hard drive, purchase an SSD drive and clone your drive over to the new one. SSD drives boot significantly faster. (Note: for an SSD to help significantly you need at least SATAII on your board)
As mentioned it is always better to have more memory, a total of 8GB or even 16GB is better but the effect on boot is much less and more than 8GB is probably not going to boot faster than 8GB, just run better overall.
The other suggestions above will certainly help and should be tried first to see if the impact is enough to satisfy you, they are certainly cheaper.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
