The very first start of AmiKit after updating takes much longer because the updated files need to be extracted during the startup. Every other startup should boot at usual speed.

If you did not install the update and every first launch of AmiKit is slow then it might be because of slow harddisk loading. Then, if you reboot, the boot might be faster just because some of the startup files are already cached by WinUAE.

The second boot is always faster than the first one, no matter how fast or slow was the first boot. The general slowness of file access is caused by the fact that the AmiKit files are stored in Windows directory structure. A "hardfile", a large file that represents the Amiga directory structure, is much faster. There is a guide how to convert the AmiKit to hardfile. However as soon as you start using AmiKit from the hardfile, the manual update archives (Windows executable installers) will not update your AmiKit anymore. The automatic ("Live") updates will work, though.

Or try to defragment your hard disk, eg. O&O Defrag.
