Windows 7: Couple of questions that i want to ask

19 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 X64 Ultimate
Couple of questions that i want to ask

Hi guys.

Okay, I am going to start with my laptop specs:
Intel core i5 460m (not oc'ed)
4gb of DDR3 1066mhz ram
nvidia geforce gt325m(for physx) and intel hd video(for desktop)
500gb 5200rpm WD sata2 hdd
Windows 7 x64 ultimate OS

So, i actually would like to ask you these questions:
1-is there any "tricks" how to speed up windows 7 boot time? It takes really long time. I know that my hard drive isnt lighting fast (because of rpms), but i think that it takes even longer to boot than my old IDE pc...

2-again hdd.. Is there any "tricks" to speed up hdd (don't mension defragmentatios, please)

3-how do you think, what is the best software to defrag hdd?

4-my laptop is on fire! No Im kidding. But seriously, when i run prime95 heat tests on my laptop, with 2stars (out of 5)(2 stars is default and recomended) performance level, I get ~95C temperatures from cpu... And my laptop is on my desk so it gets good airflow... I mean, does this laptop was designed for temperatures like this? On idle i get about 60-50C. P.s. laptop is new, bought about a mont or two ago, and it was hottie all the time.

Okay, so thank you for your time and --clever-- answers

Blow the dust out of the laptop: Heat and Dust LaptopTips

Uncheck everything in msconfig>Startup except AV and gadgets/stikynotes if you use them. All others are freeloaders on your startup, CPU/RAM and can spy on you. Startup Programs - Change

Then install Soluto, reboot and study the animated boot map it presents to see if there are hidden startups you can turn off or Delay.

Here is the advanced program pro's use to trace slow startup/shutdown:
