Use Startup Delayer to Reduce Boot Time

Some programs need to start right away, like your dock or your antivirus program. Some programs can wait; for example: Messenger programs, etc.

With StartUp Delayer, you can set programs to start up in defined intervals, which will smooth the startup process considerably. The program also acts as a startup manager, allowing you to uncheck programs you don’t want to run at all.

Picture shows Startup delayer’s interface, which lets you drag programs to the delay area. Once in the delay area, you can define how long to wait before these programs start. After testing this software on my Windows 7 Ultimate laptop (Core Duo 2 GHz, 3 GB ram), I managed to get a complete startup time (boot to functionality) in 28 seconds (originally 41)… not bad. I have done other things to tweak my laptop, but this is still a real improvement.
