Three Tools To Speed Up & Optimize Windows Startup

Everyone wants a system that boots in as less time as possible. Some people do not shutdown their systems just because it takes a long time to start up again. Here I’ll discuss 3 utilities for analyzing the Windows startup. After analyzing, you will be able to see which file or program is actually taking how much time during Windows startup and you can disable the items that take longer during startup.

BootVis:

BootVis is a very old utility by Microsoft which was specifically designed for analyzing Windows XP startup.While it’s free, the only disadvantage is that it is only compatible with Windows XP. No Windows Vista or Windows 7 support is available as Microsoft has abandoned this utility. But still it’s worth having if you’re using Windows XP.

WinBootInfo:

WinBootInfo is the advanced Windows Boot Analyzer that logs drivers and applications loaded during system boot, measures Windows boot times, records CPU and I/O activity during the boot, and much more!

It’s features include:
- Windows Boot Time Logging
- Detailed information about loaded drivers, applications and system DLLs
- Each loaded system component is displayed on the detailed time map
- Tree-View of Loaded Processes sorted in time
- Different times logged (boot to Login Prompt, Explorer, Session Manager)
- Detailed CPU utilization tracking during boot, per every CPU core
- I/O activity tracking during boot
- System Interrupt / Context Switch tracking during boot
- Text Log generation and Printing
- History Feature, for comparing current with the past boot results

WinBootInfo is not free but it is compatible with Windows XP as well as Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. It costs $14.95 but a 30 day trial is available.


Boot Log XP:

Boot Log XP is the best Windows boot analyzer. It has got all the features of the previous analyzers plus it is compatible with Windows 7 also. Boot Log XP creates a new boot log file and then displays the log file visually so that we can better understand what’s going on with our system. This software is also not free. It costs about $19.95 for a single license but it is available for a 30 day trial.

There is a great software Digeus I recommend to use it when windows system hangs, works slow or doesn't boot up. I also use Windows Tune Up Suite form Windsty. It restores system to a healthy state.
