    when you say you ran utility, what utility? and what did you do? have you tried resetting the pram or running cron scripts?

    It might be time to do a fresh install of the operating system. It's going to be hard to figure out what the problem might be.

    It is well known that the startup time becomes VVEERRYY long if you have a lot of additional Fonts in your Home (must be ~/Library/Fonts)...
