Maybe check your system start folder:

Start->run->enter 'cmd' and hit enter

Then go to the 'System Start' folder and uncheck all programs that don't need to be started automatically during startup.

That could just be due to the amount and/or type of programs that you have configured to run automatically when Windows starts up. Things like anti-virus programs obviously should be auto-started, but you can cut down on your startup time by not auto-loading components related to AIM/AOL, MSN Messenger, RealPlayer, Winamp, Yahoo Messenger, etc.

Hang on here- you use dial-up at work to connect to your work's server?? Do you work from an off-site location or something like that? If not, that sounds like a very strange network setup your company has there.

Dial-up is dial-up. Regardless of what server(s) you are connecting to at the other end of the line, you're still at the mercy of the possible limitations that can plague the wiring infrastructure between you and your destination (age/quality of the physical wiring, line noise, etc.).

Hrm??

Did you mean "Start->run->enter 'msconfig' and hit enter... Then go to the 'startup' tab?
