When Windows starts, many programs are loaded automatically. The launch of some of them at startup is perfectly justified as firewalls, antivirus, download manager. Others, however, are not necessarily required and time. The System Configuration utility in Windows will allow you to easily choose the software to allow the Windows startup and disable those.

You can also save a few seconds by disabling automatic defragmentation of the system that takes place every time you start Windows. In fact, Windows Vista and Windows 7 defragment system files every time you start the PC. However, if you defragment your disk regularly, this automatic feature is unnecessary and it slows the release of Windows.

Finally, Windows Vista and Windows 7 have a original function, ReadyBoost, which very significantly accelerates the loading of software copying in a flash preloading external files optimized for Vista, 7, and every program.

In practice, this function gives excellent results when used with a USB drive fast. With these few tips, so you can gain a few precious seconds to boot Windows 7. These tips also work with Windows Vista.

Some manufacturers offer memory sticks stamped logo Designed for Windows ReadyBoost, specially designed for this purpose, but you can also use this function with any memory stick, as long as it offers high throughput read (at least 2.5 Mb / s).

  • To use ReadyBoost, plug your key on a USB port on your PC.
