Understanding and manipulating boot time processes

Hello everybody,

Can somebody tell me how to find out about the processes that take place during the boot process of my win 7 64? I would like to understand the processes and to influence them in a way to speed my computer.

Everything you wanted to know about the boot process. (In overview form) Study this first before attempting to change anything. There are a number of services that can be "delayed" and some features that can be removed to speed boot up. Much depends on your hardware and whether you want to pay time up front or pay throughout the day.

Added: There's more detail about the boot process but it quickly turns to tech-speak. The above read will give you an overview and some related articles. There's just too much to cover in this thread. And why re-invent the wheel.

Thanks for answering my questions.


In the meanwhile, I have managed to find a free utility called Boot Racer to measure boot time on my computer. I have managed to reduce my boot time from 190 seconds to 75 seconds only by simply applying a few tricks that I've read on youtube. I am posting the results of the free utility called Boot Racer for your information.

H!m, YouTube is not always the best place for technical advice. What exactly did you do?

BootRacer is great for testing just how the decisions you make with your PC affect your start-up time in the long run. PCs tend to slow down as registries and programs begin to muck up the works, and now you can track it. However, that's where BootRacer's usefulness ends. There is an option to "Speed up!" but it just links you to SpeedUp 2013, another program that claims to fix everything slowing down the start-up process. (PCWorld hasn't reviewed SpeedUp 2013, but 2012 received a middling review, partly because the $30 program performed tasks that free programs handle just as well.) BootRacer doesn't do anything to fix an issue itself.

My laptop gets too hot, sometimes the cores are over 75 C. I've gone into BIOS and the only option for the fan speeds was to allow it to run constantly and that is enabled. I've also tried SpeedFan but couldn't get it to work and then I read it typically doesn't work with laptops because of...
