How to speed up Windows 7 startup (boot)


If you run a lot of applications and you think that your Windows 7 is too slow for your tastes, here is another way to speed up Windows 7 boot by enabling the Boot-Only fetching feature.

  1. Click Start.
  2. Go to the Search programs and files textbox, type regedit.
  3. Click Regedit.exe
  4. If the UAC window appears, click Yes.
  5. In the registry, locate this subkey: HLKM\ SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\ Control\SessionManager\MemoryManagement\ PrefetchParameters.
  6. In the right pane, double-click EnablePrefetcher.
  7. Change the value to 2 and click OK.
  8. In the right pane, double-click EnableSuperfetch,.
  9. Change the value to 2 and click OK.
  10. Exit the registry and restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
  11. Next time you turn on your computer, the prefetcher will reserve more resources to the booting process instead of booting and application launching.

Defrag your hard disk drive, scan for viruses, get rid of antiviruses that are resource eater( such as Norton or Panda) and get Avira or Bitdefender or AVG. Run Flobo System Repair and you'll have a very fast computer.

if you don't know HKLM means HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, you probably should not be playing in the registry.
