Windows XP Pro Takes a long time to restart or shutdown.

Just recently, windows has began taking a REALLY long time to restart. Once I click restart, nothing seems to happen. The only thing I notice happening at first is that the icons in my system tray get unloaded. After that, it takes about a minute until Windows begins to disappear. The funny thing is that it only happens about 3/4 of the times I restart, and it seems to have no relation to the amount of time it had been running before the restart. I can guarantee that there are not any viruses, or spyware/adware on my machine. Is there anyone who has any ideas as to why this would be happening? Thanks for your help!
