Angry 4.5 minute boot!!!!

Hi, I have a HP laptop that has a boot issue. I just uninstalled norton atv 2004 pro, installed zonealarm suite and now it takes 4.5 minutes to boot. (its always been slow, but this is ridiculous) I tried shutting down zonealarm, but that didn't help. I defragged, cut startups to 5 prgms, don't see any driver conflicts. I ran a registry cleaner and registry optimizer, no good. Then I decided to try bootvis. However when the program shuts down the laptop, when it comes back up again to perform the trace it will only go to last known good or safe mode, so the trace is never completed. The laptop runs fine once its booted. Any ideas how I can get bootvis to run or any other things I can try aside from reinstalling XP???
