    By how many seconds will this reduce boot time?

    Really?

    Well, I think the appropriate answer here is, "Your mileage may vary".

    Back when I used Windows, I also tried using this tool, and convinced myself that it was making a difference. Then one day I noticed that I was out of drive space. Bootvis had created a HUGE log file on my disk - huge, as in several gigabytes! It's been too long for me to remember exactly how large.

    I just found this article when I was trying to remember the name of that file it created.

    There is also the post right above austinr's that quotes Microsoft saying it doesn't affect boot time.
