  • run MSCONFIG and use the BOOT menu to change the number of processors to the
    max you have.
     
    limit the programs that load/run at startup.
     
    use disk cleanup and defrag

  • Try this:

    (make layout.ini then boot defrag, this could take a half hour)
    start /wait rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks

    (optimize Readyboot or Readyboost on a usb stick)
    reboot and login 5 times

    Or just sleep and never reboot.

    Make sure you have ahci drivers (native command queuing).

  • Another one is to check the No GUI boot within MSCONFIG. It gets rid of the Windows logo that appears on startup. On slow machines it can cut the boot time pretty drastically but personally I don't like it because it can look like the machine just isn't working.
