Windows 7: windows boots slow

Don't touch services - that's a myth. In your BIOS, set your hard drive to boot first and disable the second, third, fourth boot entries etc. Then find a setting to load the PCI x16 graphics card first - probably something like init_display. Lastly disable legacy usb support and floppy support.

In Windows, use Autoruns:

and look through the logon tab.

Just go through the options I suggested in your BIOS, then use Autoruns - it lists what runs at startup among 3000 other things.

That is one of the first things I do on system.
I noticed a large increase in speed.
I boot from my CD drive first off then it goes to my primary hard drive... if i switch to my primary hard drive it should load quicker right??
Yes.If you ever need to boot from your dvd drive then you just go back into BIOS and make the dvd the first boot device.

It really speeds my boot time.
