Boot up trouble

Mac using os 10 takes ten to fifteen minutes to boot up. Starts off with a flashing globe that eventually changes to a flashing folder with 2 people on it. Once it does boot up it seems to work fine. It just is puzzling why it takes so long and why those two icons sit there and flash. Help!
QUOTE Thanks
