    Hi,

    I have a Toshiba p205-s6287, intel duo processors, 4gb RAM. I am running Home Premium 64-bit. After doing some minor tweaks, my boot time is ranging between 67 and 87 seconds, as measured by the events view log. I am only running a few programs on startup, ie, carbonite, roboform, MSS, Synaptics Pointing Device, Action Center, Toshiba power supply, network icon, volume control icon... If i don't startup Carbonite I only improve by a few seconds.

    I was curious to what boot times others with like setup are experiencing? If your boot time is much improved from mine, maybe you could share some secrets.

    I know this isn't such a big deal, but if I can improve on what I have, I'd sure like to.

    These are the two warnings I got in event viewer:

    Windows has started up:
    Boot Duration : 77197ms
    IsDegradation : false
    Incident Time (UTC) : ‎2009‎-‎11‎-‎08T02:40:29.780800500Z

    This application took longer than usual to start up, resulting in a performance degradation in the system startup process:
    File Name : MsMpEng.exe
    Friendly Name : AntiMalware Service Executable
    Version : 2.0.6212.0
    Total Time : 1845ms
    Degradation Time : 1487ms
    Incident Time (UTC) : ‎2009‎-‎11‎-‎08T02:40:29.780800500Z

    Any experts on boot times out there?

    Thanks,
    Don

    Great info, Please close thread. I didn't mean to start a boot time comparison competition.

    Thanks,
    Don

    Most of us almost never shut down. check you administrator logs under Event Viewer / custom if you resolve everthing so that nothing is reported there it won't get much faster. You may can shave 5 seconds off by running MSconfig and checking NO Gui. Sometimes a disk in your dvd will slow down bootup.
    Make sure the drive you are booting is first in the boot priority in your bios.

    There are ton of services you can switch to Manual rather than automatic.. and over 100 programs in the Task Scheduler that have to be checked.... You can disable them ALL.. I even turned off Task Scheduler and it didn't hurt a thing.

    I have a ton of these tweaks in my blogs. Knock yourself out!

    You can get to the event view a number of ways. The way I do it is click on start, type in "eve" and enter, select "view event logs", expand "Applications and Services Log", then expand "Microsoft", and select "Windows", on the right side in the Windows pane, select "Diagnostic-Performance", at the top of the Diagnostic-Performance pane, you will see a name "Operational", click on it and the boot information is available. You can click on one of the warnings or error levels and get additional info at he bottom of the screen.

    Hope this helps,
    Don

    You only have to type "ev" and press enter to get started.. you are causing eveyone to waste a keystroke

    I find nothing there... and what warnings?

    Welcome... did anything actually work? I seldom hear back from anyone who tried my tweaks... I assumed their system crashed and they are trying to get it fixed.

    Boot time gets better after tweaking with Windows 7 manager. It's got 21 day trial.
