Speed Up Boot and Shutdown Times

Shorten the time it takes for your desktop to appear when you turn on your PC—and make Windows shut down faster.

No matter how fast your PC boots, it’s not fast enough. Here are several hacks to get you right to
your desktop as quickly as possible after startup, whether you use Windows XP or Windows Vista.
Confi rm That Boot Defragmentation Is Enabled
There’s a simple way to speed up Windows startup: make your system do a boot defragment, which
puts all the boot fi les next to one another on your hard disk. When boot fi les are in close proximity to
one another, your system will start faster.
On most systems, boot defragment should be enabled by default, but it might not be on yours, or
it might have been changed inadvertently. To make sure that boot defragment is enabled on your
system, launch the Registry Editor by typing regedit at the Start Search box or a command prompt
 and go to:
Edit the Enable string value to Y if it is not already set to Y. Exit the Registry and reboot. The next
time you reboot, your computer will perform a boot defragment.
