Vista does take longer to boot on a laptop. How is the speed of operation once your system is booted? Is normal speed of operation good enough?

Slow boot can be related to having too many programs starting up when you boot. OEM's often load computers down with unnecessary startup software, or you could even have malware being started up. You need to be careful doing this, but you can run a program called "msconfig" on your laptop, and see all the programs that are started when your laptop boots. If you go through those programs, and be sure that you understand what each one is, disable those that you're sure you don't need, or that are known malware/spyware. But be very careful, as laptops have startup programs that are needed for the hardware that are not present on desktops, like software for the built-in touchpad, and so on. And your antivirus software starts at this point, as well. Don't turn off anything that you don't know what it's for.

At any rate, if you can turn off some programs that are not needed at startup time using "msconfig", your boot will run faster.

But again, be careful, read about this on the internet before you do it, and make sure that you understand which programs that your computer needs at startup.

Hi Rogerv,

Extremely sorry for the late reply.There are 2 reasons for is i have been out from the home.other one is thanks to JV Powertools 2009 i have solved my problem.

Yes i did try everything including use of msconfig to remove programs that i think i don't want.But it made things worse first time cause i may have unticked some basic programs as wel.First my WIFI didn't worked and then i left the startup items as it is.

I was so frustrated about the problem for some time cause nothing had helped me.However one of ma friend who is having the same laptop as mine did not experienced a problem like mine.

So i asked him about the problem and he said that he is using a registry cleaner called JV Powertools 2009 and it got rid of every problem.So i also try it and results are amazing.

I ran a scan and found 31 errors and i fixed them using their tools.

Then i restarted the laptop and now it loads very fast.(nearly about 30 secs). I think JV Powertools has eliminated the unwanted registry files which effects the start up.Its been some time i have used it and so far laptop works super fine.No errors or application conflicts like other registry cleaners.Love it..!

Try it if you have problems like that.I am sure it's gonna help.see ya again on another thread.really thanks for your informative reply.learned a lot.
