    Hi,

    I always use this script that a user here once posted (forgot the name) to measure my reboot time / system performance.

    Just double click on it, then press OK to reboot your system and give you the reboot time. It measures the reboot time from Windows Shutting down, restarting, all the way till you first see the Windows Desktop again.

    Download RebootTime.vbs HERE


    Please post your Reboot time / System Setup / Any Tweaks you have made.

    I will start:

    System: TOSHIBA SATELLITE L655-1HC
    • Intel Core i5 M 480 @ 2.67 / 2.93 GHz.
    • 8 GB DDR3 RAM
    • ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 1 GB
    • 15.6" Toshiba TruBrite® HD TFT display

    Tweaks:

    • Disable NTFS time stamps
    • Disable NTFS Encryption
    • Disable Compression in NTFS System
    • Disable Windows Start-up Sound

    Wow, thanks for the detailed overview of your system setup.

    I am wondering how you disable some of these services. Such as Computer Browser, isn't it needed if you wanna see computer on the network?

    If you have time, can you just type a brief about these services for us to be able to determine if we can follow you too?

    Thanks alot

    15 secondso_O? :eek: Are you sure that is from Windows, to shut down, to POST, to reboot? or are you just measuring the boot time?

    Please tell us your system setup. I bet you have an SSD if you really meant that's your reboot time :p

    I have a hybrid drive. It varies between 15 and 20, I used "boottimer.exe" last time to check. I'll try this one now.

    edit: wtf? This isn't working for me... I don't think. I think Comodo sandbox'd it lol

    edit2: definitely not working, won't shut my computer down

    Hi,

    Another really good reboot speed test programme is http://www.greatis.com/bootracer/.

    I use this programme all the time and my boot time is 56 seconds on a 4 year old system running windows 7 64bit.

    The Computer Browser service is only needed to elect a "browse master", which is one computer on your subnet, that keeps track of "who is who". You only need one browse master. Keeping this service enabled can cause "browse master elections", which "could" create some collisions/excess traffic on your network. google it and see what it is all about. I always turn mine off. At work, the primary server has it on. No elections going on there ;)

    This takes too much time, and most of us read about a service, decide we don't need it, and move on. I would point you to google blackviper, there are comprehensive definitions and settings there for you to explore. I would also recommend you google "pserv" and use that to make an .xml backup of your current services before you start messing with them. Using pserv allows you to import the backup, and essentially restore your system. Messing with services is a great thing to do if you want to learn something useful, but can also be destructive to proper booting/operation if you mess up. Pserv is my favorite tool for such purposes.

    My boot time is roughly 10 seconds if you don't count BIOS related stuff. That means from the time it POSTS, to typing in password, is about 10 seconds. Counting my BIOS and boot loader, it is roughly 25 seconds. I have an Intel SSD drive. My rig is older, C2D, nothing much. I have tweaked my machine in every way possible.

    Hello,

    I clocked my boot time this morning, and it came in at just over four minutes. That's from 7 x64's Starting Windows message to when the CPU gauge on 7 Sidebar drops from 100% to the normal 15-20%.

    Regards,

    Nathan

    My advise to you is using some of your listed software posted elsewhere on this forum because these figures are far from normal. Not to say there must be a lot of scrap on that machine.

    I have 5 computers and I assure you, none boot up in less than 45 seconds.

    Seems more like an hour.;)

    Woooo. 54 seconds. Ye Old tower is going on 9yrs with XP and a bucketload of stuff installed. There's life in the old beast yet.

    Special mention must be made about a recent master-stroke. Unistalled the AV. The PC feels like a bird instead of a buffalo.

    Boot time is not important to me, so I don't know how long it takes my systems to boot
