Editing the registry can be tricky.  If you make a mistake you run the risk of not being able to start your computer afterward.

 

For this reason you should backup your registry prior to making any changes in the registry.

 

 
To backup the registry please down load and install Tweaking.com Registry Backup.
 
Play the video below for operating instructions.

This is the default setting (3) for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, 8.1, and Windows TP. Windows XP had a default setting of (2).

 

Valid settings are 0, 1, 2, 3. 

 

Hopefully no one will fall for this, as it has been around since the Windows XP days and has no effect on startup performance.

How do you measure the time your system takes to completely restart?
I'd like to try that with my SSHD.

Simple .VBS file...

Option Explicit
On Error Resume Next
Dim Wsh, Time1, Time2, Result, PathFile, MsgResult, MsgA, AppName, KeyA, KeyB, TimeDiff
MsgA = "Close all running apps & click OK"
KeyA = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RestartTime\"
KeyB = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\RestartTime"
AppName = "Reboot_Time"
Set Wsh = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
PathFile = """" & WScript.ScriptFullName & """"
Result = wsh.RegRead(KeyA & "Times")
if Result = "" then
MsgResult = Msgbox (MsgA, vbOKCancel, AppName)
If MsgResult = vbcancel then WScript.Quit
Wsh.RegWrite KeyA & "Times", left(Time,8), "REG_SZ"
Wsh.RegWrite KeyB, PathFile, "REG_SZ"
Wsh.Run "cmd /c Shutdown -r -f -t 00", false, 0 
else
Wsh.RegDelete KeyA & "Times"
Wsh.RegDelete KeyA
Wsh.RegDelete KeyB
TimeDiff = DateDiff("s",Result,left(Time,8))
MsgBox "Your computer takes " & TimeDiff & " seconds to completely restart.", VbInformation, AppName
end if
wscript.Quit

Copy into notepad (or other text editor) save as anynameyoulike.VBS  You can also change "MsgA", "AppName" & "MsgBox" etc to whatever you like.

 

EDIT: I've only run this in wscript but I imagine it would also run in cscript, might test it later.

HTH :)

Just for kicks n giggles I swapped out the SSD with the spinner HDD that came with the laptop (1tb WD 5400rpm) & installed a recent backup from my SSD, adjusted stuff like Superfetch, defrag etc I had disabled on SSD, defragged & rebooted about a dozen times to rebuild prefetch, superfetch, caches, indexing, etc...then measured reboot time... open "Spoiler" for results. :)

 

Spoiler

 

I'll NEVER go back to a spinner no matter what the cost :P... actually cost of SSD's have come down to earth recently.

This was not so much for your benefit, it was meant to educate the readers of this topic to the potential risks associated with novis members trying their hand at editing the registry. :thumbup2:

I followed that script. I have a pretty fast computer with ssd drives. By the time I got through grub for dual boot linux/windows, then windows boot manager for 2 windows installs, then password login, the little message said 34 seconds. This was my second attempt the first was 40 seconds. I agree with union thug ssd is the way to go if your looking to speed up start time.
