Is there any tool which can show me the causes of a slow Windows Xp boot and shutdown?

It would be useful to check what is starting with the bootup -- use autoruns from SysInternals .
It would also help track what is running (and needs to be shutdown at the end) -- procexp.

The first thing that comes to mind is Bootviz, It is no longer supported by Microsoft and the download link comes from a third party, so I have linked to the Wikipedia page about it and you can make up your own mind if you want to use it.
