Look under the "BOOT.INI" tab. You will see a box labeled "Timeout:", and a numerical value. By default, it's 30, which means 30 seconds of wait time before boot. This can be changed, make it 4 seconds. (Note: if you have more than one operating system, this means the wait time to startup to the highlighted Operating System is longer. Sometimes you might want a bit more than 4 seconds, then you can opt 5 or 10 seconds)

Delete The Temporary Files Periodically From Your Computer To Make The Applications Run Faster. Type %temp% in the run dialog box by clicking on Start -> Run, and click on "OK". You will see an open folder with many files. Click on the Edit menu and click on Select all and then click on the File menu and select Delete. Note: Always confirm that the folder which is opened has the word "temp" on the top of the menu bar and the folder indicates that it is a temporary folder.

Always Perform a Disk Defragmentation at least once a month. Start the disk defragmentation from the System Tools menu available in the Accessories menu from the Start menu. It takes a longer time and it is advised not to run any applications in the computer including the screen savers, while running disk defragmentation.

Method 1 of 2: Hibernation

1

After doing all this, another method you can do is to allow the computer to hibernate. Hibernation closes and opens Windows faster than usual. However, Hibernation is a good long-term recommended solution, as it does save electricity.

The power can then be completely turned off, even at the socket so that no power is wasted.

Method 2 of 2: Prefetch

670px-Make-Windows-XP-Startup-Faster-Step-12-Version-3.jpg


12Edit step
1

Simply browse to the Windows folder (Ex: C:\Windows) and under there you would see the prefetch folder. Go into the prefetch folder and delete all the files (Beware! It should look like this c:\windows\prefetch). We need to edit a registry key to tweak it. Open regedit and browse to this key:

670px-Make-Windows-XP-Startup-Faster-Step-13-Version-3.jpg


13Edit step
2

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters

670px-Make-Windows-XP-Startup-Faster-Step-14-Version-3.jpg


14Edit step
3

Under this key you should see a value named: EnablePrefetcher

670px-Make-Windows-XP-Startup-Faster-Step-15-Version-3.jpg


15Edit step

It has 4 possible values:

- Disabled : The prefetch system is turned off.

- Application : The prefetch only caches applications.

- Boot : The prefetch only caches system boot files.

8

- All : The prefetch caches boot, and application files.

You need to not disable it entirely. This would actually make boot time longer. This is because this feature is also used to speed up the loading of boot files. That is why you should pick the number 2 option. It allows you to keep the advantage of caching system files, without continually clogging the system up with applications.

10

Set the value to 2 and reboot.

The 2nd time you boot it should boot much faster. Remember that, the side effect is that launching individual applications once Windows has loaded will now be slightly slower.

XP je XP....ne menjam ga..:)..veoma je lak za rad ....:D
Internet download manager se takodje pokazao kao jedan od mogucih programa koji usporavaju boot windowsa....cak i kada se deinstalira ostavlja tragove kao da je i dalje prisutan......meni je napravio da boot traje preko 2-3 minuta sto smatram da je mnogo.....posle raznih podesavanja i proveravanja svih servisa i start-up programa...pokazao se da je bar kod mene on krivac......moja je preporuka da taj program ne instalirati ......:cool:
Ako se i desi da stavite zadnju verziju ovog programa kao sto sam ja uradila i javi vam se ovakav problem.....ne pokusavajte da ga skinete obicnom deinstalacijom....jedini nacin je system restore na neki predhodni datum i to je to:p
