The typical Windows desktop loads a lot of items that are never or rarely used. Some are not even required to boot (eg, Windows Live Messenger, Skype) yet they startup with Windows by default if you install them and consume system resources unnecessarily. The more items that startup with your system, the slower the boot will be hence the longer it takes for your computer to be ready for use.
Using Soluto is a simple install and reboot to profile your system boot. The caveat is that you can't uninstall Soluto, or it will revert the changes you've to the boot sequence. Soluto is also currently in Beta, so there's many software it can't manage yet.

Finally, don't forget to provide feedback with the feedback button. Fledgling projects depend on a healthy community building up around it to evolve into successful projects. I'm quite sure the developers would greatly appreciate bug reports or feature suggestions. Even some words of praise if you particularly liked the software is rewarding.
