    Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Service Pack 1 (Build 6.1.7601)


    I would say you are right then Windows 7 came out with this 15 sec boot time yes it loads windows in XX amount off seconds but it needs to load all the other programs as well.

    I would like a Quicker Shutdown speed as if your Shutting down in Safe mode while still in Normal mode

    Also I would like a Better Defragmenter and also Microsoft Security Essentials Pre-Installed because Windows Defender is an awful AS

    First what's wrong with Windows defrag, if you have it turned on it does it for you without asking as needed, second MSE is simple to install, what are you waiting for

    W10 Pro (desktop), W10 (laptop), W8.1 (tablet), W10 (laptop)


    The only feature on the list I'm interested in is the faster boot time, the other features such as touch screen or biometric support don't have any appeal to me.

    I have a Toshiba laptop with fingerprint reader and currently have it disabled because it's a PITA instead of being useful.

    My Dell's fingerprint reader is useless! No matter how many times I try, I can never even get two of the five swipes to match when setting it up! I certainly don't trust it to log me on with! I might also want an additional tool as a Graphical Front end to sxstrace.exe with some more curative ability. It is fine for me to use, but to an average user it is completely useless and means a complete re-install.
