Halp, halp-- my laptop takes about 10 minutes to boot. I suspect the last round of Microsoft updates but can't find any problems. No spyware, virus or other malware.

What are the specs, CPU , RAM , ect? What programs are you using to scan for viruses and malware? Have you tried booting into safe mode and doing an msconfig to see whats starting up with Windows? Also and some would disagree with this but if you are running Vista I have found this to be pretty much the norm rather than the exception.

If you suspect Windows Update hosed it you should be able to fix it with a system restore after it finally boots.
