Fix Windows 7 SP1 Slow Startup Due to Large Number of Restore Points

A fix offered by Microsoft is designed to help customers deal with poor boot performance in specific scenarios involving Windows 7 and Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

The Redmond company confirmed the issue and noted that impacted users have created a large number of restore points, a move which cause the slowing down of the startup process.

According to the software giant, affected customers are most likely using large hard disks in addition to create too many restore points on their machines.

Well, I don't think 50 is a big number - but I do agree 50 restore points are really more than what one (read: I) need.

That explains a bit or two. Will either take down these restore points to a sane number or apply this patch. Unsure which of them, but I will definitively work on this.

Thanks for sharing.
