I believe someone already changed his name, deservedly so.

I was wondering how long it would take for startas to get banned. All I can say is "good riddance"!

That's actually the name I originally wrote, but changed it.
Didn't think he would be around long with that attitude.

Like I said in a previous post........we've lost members who were friendly, and generally wanted to be helpful for less than what this cat was doing. Some peoples kids...

We'll just have to make do with what we have I guess.....even if he does get back on the forum, I doubt he'd want to "help" us any

Back to the topic:

Laptop mentioned in my specs. MSconfig > Services shows 156 services are started when booted, 135 Microsoft ones and 21 others. All these services enabled at start. After reboot before any actions, Task Manager shows 69 processes, 98 for all users.

At boot at least all these programs and background processes are automatically started: Setpoint, WD Quick View, Send to OneNote tool, Shotty Screenshot Utility, Core Temp, Intel Rapid Storage Technology, Beats Audio Controls, ATI Control Center, Bluetooth, Synaptics Touchpad Control.

Reboot time:

And then the "pimped" one. All startup programs, services and processes not necessary to run Windows disabled to get fastest possible result:

Name:  Reboot_1.png
Views: 8
Size:  3.9 KB

I can leave with these results, even the longer one is OK, for I reboot normally only when Windows Update asks for it and that does not happen too often.

Either of those times would be plenty fast enough. I reboot when I have to for an install/uninstall or an update......other than that, I'm up and running for a week at least. It doesn't matter if my PC reboots in 1 second or 60 seconds honestly, as it happens so infrequently. I remember getting clients computers and the start/restart time being well into the "minutes" just to get on the desktop, much longer for a "usable" desktop......ugh.

Those are great reboot times Kari. One thing I did notice when I sys-prepped my system and moved everything back to the C: drive, reboot was must faster, say 30 seconds or so, than with using separate OS and data drives.
In the end it doesn't seem to effect performance. Like overclocking benchmarks, reboot time is a bragging point.
