Summary


This chapter showed you many ways to reduce the amount of time it takes your computer to boot. First, you worked on changing some of the BIOS settings that would optimize your computer for maximum boot speed. Then, I showed you how you can remove your boot screen to shave off some more time. After that, I went over how you can disable other parts of Windows, such as hardware, fonts, and services that you may never use, which all take up time when your computer starts up. To wrap up the chapter, I showed you how you can optimize the placement of the files used when your computer boots using the Prefetcher service and a third-party disk defragment tool.

This chapter showed you how to speed up the first half of your computer's startup. The next chapter picks up on the second half, the system logon. I show you some cool tips on how you can speed it up, too.
