How to Fix Windows Slow Boot


It often happens that Windows boots slow. This can happen due to a number of reasons such as the presence of too many start up programs. However, the major cause of such boot delays is the registry corruption in Windows. Whatever the cause, the Windows slow boot is intolerable and there must be done something to fix it. Here you will find simple techniques which are tested in PCs around the world.

Step-1: Repair and Clean Windows Registry

You might not be aware that there is something very important inside the Windows. And due to the corruption in this internal component of the operating system, we experience Windows slow boot. The element which is referred here is the Windows Registry which contains information about all computer programs including the boot sector programs and services.
In order to have a quick Windows boot there must not be any corruption in the Windows registry entries. The best way to speed up a slow booting Windows is to use some authentic PC optimizer and registry cleaning tool.

Step-2: Reduce Start Up Items

Whether you are using Windows 7, Vista or XP, you must have some programs in your computer that start with the Windows start up. Sometimes too many programs running in background result in Windows slow boot. You can disable these programs through a start up manager tool in the PC optimizer software. Although there is a way to disable such programs through the "msconfig" function in the Windows but it is not recommended for all types of users since they can mistakenly disable the important Windows services necessary to run the entire system.

Step-3: Run An AntiVirus/AntiMalware Scan

Although not all boot problems are caused by the viruses or malwares but it is wise to run scans through these security softwares. However, it must be kept in mind that the registry repairing scan must be run prior to such scans for the best results to fix Windows slow boot.


The above guidelines will surely help you to make Windows boot faster. If you are looking for a complete PC Optimizer and Registry Cleaner software for a quick fix of your problem then it is highly recommended you run the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut scan here to fix > Windows Slow Boot.

How to clean up start up processes


Questions about optimize start up:
How to remove program from start up?
My computer boots very slow? How do I clean up start up processes?
Windows startup very slow, how to fix it?

Why clean up start up processes?
Windows Startup program will load the default programs or processes you add to your computer. The test result shows a new system only boot within 30 seconds. As you install antivirus program or other applications, it becomes very slow. Sometimes, the startup gets bloated not due to your computer behaviors. Malicious software is prone to add useless processes on startup without your known. You are not aware that your computer becomes more and more slow until serious computer problem occurs. Don’t ignore a slow start up, it is the root of Blue Screen and computer freezing.

How to clean up start up processes?
The first thing you should do is to remove spyware or adware from your computer. I prefer to AVG, it is a free anti-virus program. If you want to clean virus completely, you need boot in safe mode and disconnect your Internet.

Hok is a professor with over ten year’s computer experience. He suggest us use ErrorFix. This is a pc optimize tool which can clean up system registry entries, useless program, start up processes and junk files. With this program, your computer will be obviously improved. Just a few clicks, you can remove processes that slow your computer.

What’s more to speed up your computer?
Do not download Peer-to-Peer Download Software! Maybe you are using some software such like YouTube Downloader. These are probably some of the least likely contenders for system-slowdown but they are popular on the internet. Those kinds of program can take up memory space and damage your computer. Also they can automatically add itself as your start up.

At times, the boot-up is slow and the computer is slow/sluggish because the disk is not "clean" or there's a shortage of storage space remaining. If you have already tried using the Disk Utilities and/or other tools (e.g. Onyx) to fix/clean up the disk, and it still doesn't make any difference, and you still have a good amount of disk space remaining, and all your memory (RAM) is still working, there may be something else going on ... e.g. another process taking place behind the scene (e.g. downloads/uploads) and using lots of resources.
