Boot Windows XP faster

Does your computer take a lot of time to start, which frustrates you? I am going to highlight 3 most effective ways to boot (start) your Windows computer faster.

1. Startup

  • Go to start>run then type msconfig and press enter.
  • Go to the startup tab. Here you will see a list of startup items.
  • These are all the programs that automatically start when you boot your PC. These programs slow down the boot up process.
  • So uncheck all the unwanted items like ms-office, messengers other utilities that u may not need at startup. Don’t uncheck your antivirus software.

Restart your PC to and see for yourself, your pc will now boot

2. Do a boot defragment.

This places all boot files next to each other on the
disk for faster booting. By default this option is enabled, but
on some systems it is not, so below is the information on how to turn it on:

  • Go to Start Menu and Click Run
  • Type regedit then click ok
  • Find “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction
  • Select “Enable” from the list on the right
  • Right-click on it and select “Modify”
  • Change the value to Y .
  • Reboot your PC and see the change yourself.


This is done by disabling your unused devices in Device Manager. for example, if you don’t have input devices that are connected to one of your USB’s or COM ports, disabling them will give you an extra performance boost in booting.

  • Go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware tab -> device manager
  • Disable devices that you don’t use for your PC and then restart.

Use your Pen drive as RAM

With the release of Windows Vista and Windows 7, Microsoft has introduced a new technology called ReadyBoost.

With the help of this technology you can use any Flash drive, SD Cards, CF Cards as the third memory option for the computer.

For Windows Vista & 7

1. Open My Computer.
2. Right Click on the Removable Disk Drive and select Properties.
3. Click on ReadyBoost Tab.
4. Enable the feature by selecting the option and allocate the amount of space you want to use as memory.

Things to be noted

1. You need at least 512 Mb of memory to run Windows Vista & 7 decently.
2. If your device is not giving the option of ReadyBoost, then it means that it doesn’t clear up the minimum data trasfer rate required by ReadBoost technology.
