Optimize Windows 7

Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit, OSX El Capitan, Windows 10 (VMware)

Adding an SSD drive would do more than any optimization. That's not to say optimization is useless, marsmimer is right and you should follow the steps at the link...

Hello nithishwin7user. In addition to the above, you can try the following to speed up Windows 7 startup:

Go to Start -- Type 'services.msc' -- Hit Enter -- Now find "Superfetch" and make sure it is set to automatic and is running.

Install the following Microsoft hotfixes:

1. An update that improves the startup performance of Windows 7 and of Windows Server 2008 R2 is available
2. The Windows 7 startup process is slow when you create many restore points
3. The startup process is delayed on a computer that has a large hard disk installed and is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

If the above updates were already there, then no problem, proceed ahead.

Go here: Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows 8 and download the SDK. This SDK meant for Windows 8 works flawlessly with Windows 7 so don't you worry!

Now run the setup, choose install location and when you're asked to select the components to install, choose ONLY "Windows Performance Toolkit" and click Install.

Once installation completes, you HAVE to restart the system.

Now after rebooting, click Start , type 'cmd', right click 'cmd' in the results and click 'Run as administrator'.

Now enter the following command:

xbootmgr -trace boot -prepSystem -verboseReadyBoot
and hit Enter. System will be restarted 6 times. Do NOT use the computer till the entire process finishes. Don't click anything (don't click Finish or Cancel in the white box after every reboot).

Once all reboots are done, see if there's a change in the startup time (there will be ).

Hope this helped. Also don't forget to disable unnecessary startup items and services using msconfig utility.

What does the xboot command do?

It appears to be to generate a boot trace from Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace - Windows 7 Forums.

Since there is considerable expertise needed to analyze the output it is best to post the tutorial where this can be assisted in the Comments section.

Thanks Greg. I don't see how seeing the trace logs can do anything to performance though.
