As I was waiting on hold to speak to Dell the machine said something
about doing a system restore so I decided maybe that was the trick.
You know, windows magic. "I have no idea if this will solve the
problem but lets try it and see if it magicly works!" Anyhow, right
after I completed the system restore my computer now takes
aproximately 8 minutes just to boot to the login screen, then another
5 or so minutes to actualy be able to start to use it. HELP PLEASE!

Hi,

How far back was it restored to?

If you did the restore from within Windows it can be undone using the
System Restore Wizard.

Now describe the original problem that prompted the call to Dell.
Maybe we can help.
