Slow Boot Up Time - Windows 7

Slow Boot Up Time - Windows 7

Postby axistent » Sun Mar 18, 2012 1:08 pm

Hi

I am having slow boot up time on my Windows 7 (Dell Studio 15, Intel i5). I did a boot log via MSCONFIG. Then, I threw the entire log into excel pivot table and it was a bit staggering.

Here are the results below. Is there any way to get rid of these "did not load driver" issues??

This proposed solution is for XP but it may well work for W7 too.

Give Soluto a run, I have been using it for a couple of months now and currently only using it to be speed up my boot time with Windows 7.

I have gone from 6:25 boot time to 3:04 and so far I have really only changed the 'safe' reccomendations of Windows & Application Services to from 'Startup' to 'Delayed' I am quite sure I could get even more if I uninstalled a heap of rubbish that I dont use anymore.

Have a look at the Getting Started Guide (Windows 7 or Windows 8)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soluto#Features
The Soluto dashboard has 6 sections, divided into categories of technical information that the user can see and remote actions the user can initiate:
  • Frustrations: view information about non-responsive applications, recent application crashes, possible causes for crashes, and crash solutions.
  • Apps: view a list of applications that have available updates and start the updates. View a list of applications that can be remotely downloaded and installed on the PC, and start the downloads.
  • Background Apps: view the list of applications that start when the computer boots up, descriptions of the applications, and recommended actions based on the actions taken by other Soluto users. Remove applications from boot up or set applications to launch shortly after boot up.
  • Internet: select or install a default browser, set the homepage, and change the default search engine. View enabled toolbars and add-ons, descriptions of them, and whether Soluto recommends the item be disabled. Disable toolbars and add-ons.
  • Protection: turn on the PC’s firewall, view or install antivirus software, and install Windows updates.
  • Hardware: View technical info about the PC’s hardware, including available memory and battery health. Defrag the hard drives.
Cheers, Stephen
