It's a Boot Race!
 
Lets see how long it takes for your Windows to boot up.

-To do that, download the timer from here: http://www.planetsoft.org/utils/BootTimer.exe
-Remove your windows password.
-Run the program, do what it says.
-Post results here.

If you have a password on your account it will include typing your password to login as part of the boot up process.
Lame!

I had a problem with it.
It wouldnt work till I gave it administrator run rights then after reboot it popped up at the bottom of the screen asking me if i wanted to run it i said yes and it opened then told me not to use the mouse or keyboard although i had so I could click to run it :lol: then it waited and came up and said 66 seconds but that's after waiting and seeing at the bottom of the screen then having to click it. I wonder why no one else was having problems. Everyone running 64 bit Win 7 like me? If they are then I don't have a problem with that. :)

Not unhappy with this as I have afterburner, steam and MSE start on bootup, never would have done that with a mechanical drive. :)

EDIT: I have no problem with this. :lol:

Nope it's on the default setting for user account control.

I really think MSE slowed down my boot up times but I'll leave it. I can live with a little longer boot up. Runs great once I'm up.
