Other than faster hardware, you could use options 9, 13, 17, 19, 24, 32, and anything else below you find that applies to your situation to help improve the performance of Windows 7.

Hi

I am on Windows 7 but I unable to do GUI boot in any of the ways described in your guide. I must have the GUI boot option because Windows 7 boots with the animated dots turning into the Windows flag. If I go the the system configuration screen ( Boot tab) the NO GUI BOOT is already unchecked.

I also tried to use the elevated prompt command as per instructions, but the sequence given to replace “ identifier-current” is not recognized as a valid command, with or without the { }symbols.

Whatever this GUI boot is , I want to use it to stop unnerving pop ups asking me every 10 minutes(!) to update the Malwarebytes software to a newer version. They are driving me mad. I tried all possible ways to get rid of them ( Adware, Hitmanpro, etc,) without success.

Finally, it is the Malwarebytes site that told me to use the GUI interface. No luck.
These update pop ups intrude even when I am disconnected from Internet, so I thought there might something in the Register. I did Regedit, deleted and modified in all possible ways the Malwarebytes entries, to no avail. These darn pop ups keep flooding me.
Any suggestions how to do open GUI boot or using other waysit rather through GUI booting or other ways?
Thanks
Ittiandro

Hello Ittiandro,

Go ahead and run the bcdedit command in an elevated command prompt, and post back with the output to see what may be the issue.

I ran again the bcdedit command.

This time the elevated command prompt to activate the GUI returns a successful completed message. (I was inadvertently using the sample identifier sequence from your instructions!).
I am not out of the thicket, though..

Malwarebytes skimpy instructions to remove their update reminders say:

Quote Although not recommended, the user may open the Graphical User Interface (GUI) -> single left-click Settings -> single -left-click Update Settings -> Update Options: Untick: "Check for program updates when checking for database updates." Close the GUI.Unquote

After successfully running the sequence on the command prompt as per your guide I do get two additional options in the Start menu , under Programs/Accessories: Windows PowerShell ISE and Windows P.S.
The first one ( PS ISE) opens an interface screen with a file called :Untitled1.PS1, with a lower pane to type something in ( what?)
The 2nd one ( PS) opens a bluish command prompt starting with : PS C:\users\My name.
Is either or both the Graphical User Interface?

If so, how to I proceed to change the settings to eliminate the Malwarebytes update reminders? I can't see any settings option.

Thanks for your help

This would be unrelated to GUI Boot.

It is normal to have the PowerShell shortcuts in your Start menu.

The best way to stop the Malwarebytes update reminder is to allow it to update Malwarebytes.

Settings > Application tab > "Install Application Updates" button
