Windows 7: Win7 starts up faster over time

Win7 starts up faster over time

Is it possible that (with the right maintenance) that Windows 7 starts up faster over time? I'm using my installation for a while now and the start up feels much faster than it did in the beginning. Also, applications show up almost immediately after openening them on a just started Windows 7. That took some time before.
I use CCleaner and a disk defrag program on a regular basis.

Hello hethoofd.


It's probably superfetch getting used to your preferences at startup, could also be indexing settling down.

Bare Foot Kid is probably right on both accounts.



A little bit about them both.

CCleaner is pretty good. With defrag though, if you didn't do anything, Windows 7 auto defrags every Wednesday I believe and you really don't have to defrag unless you're moving around large sound banks, or video files (huge 1-4GB files), otherwise in my opinion I think windows 7 does a great job.

I also think it does boot faster. I just timed the desktop and mac (albeit firewire target disk mode (booting external OS) and Windows was faster.
