Shorten the boot-up time

Question : I'd like Windows XP to boot faster, but I don't like to fiddle with settings. Isn't there a tool that I can use that will help XP boot faster?

Answer : It's difficult for an automated tool to tackle the specific issues that cause slow boot times on each person's computer, but some have reported speed improvement's by using Microsoft's BOOTVIS application, downloadable from many places on the Internet, including Softpedia (http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/BootVis-Download- 3465.html).

BOOTVIS, once installed, will analyze your boot-up process when you open the File menu and click New ... Next Boot + Drivers Trace. You'll need to allow BOOTVIS to reboot your machine at least once. Before you do anything with BOOTVIS or another tool that is designed to help you with slow boot-ups, back up your entire system.

When your computer restarts, open the Trace menu in BOOTVIS and select Optimize System. BOOTVIS will again require a reboot of your computer. After that, however, you may notice some improvement in boot-up time.
