I've been testing the boot times of a PC I'm trying to fix up and it's currently 1m 45-55s. The goal is to cut down this time as much as possible. Would the fact that this used to be a corporate machine and on a domain be an issue? Would moving it to a local workgroup profile make a difference? Here are a few things I've done: Ensure system is clean of adware & malware Disabled MS Mobile Sync Centre Setting wait time to 0 for network in gpedit.msc did not make a difference Removed Trend Micro security and replaced with MBAM & MSE Removed unnecessary programs from startup (such as Java SE update, Adobe Reader). Programs in startup are: SynTPEnh.exe (touchpad) Hot Keys: hkcmd.exe Logmein Family Safety: fsui.exe MSE Persistence: igfxpers.exe (not sure what this does) Disk Defrag - no changes Cleared all unnecessary files and wiped free space using CCleaner Specs: Win 7 Pro 64 bit RAM: 4 GB (3.87 usable) Windows Experience index: 3.4 Low score to Gaming Graphics Questions: Would it help to move from a domain to a workgroup (local) profile? Should I just increase the ram to 8 GB? Is there anything else I can do that may help boot times? Any help is appreciated!
