How to Make my Windows 8 Startup Faster?

    There's "Mozilla Maintenance Service" in services, maybe you could disable it and see if that makes some difference.

    Thanks everyone. Maybe SSD is the way to go. I had an option to get that 1 year ago when I first got my laptop. The only problem was that it was small and expensive. However, time is money. If I sit around all the time waiting for this to work, that takes away from many other things that I could be doing.

    Thanks everyone!!

    On a COLD start, there is a default delay of 30 seconds. That can be changed to just 3 seconds, thus saving 27 seconds just in the boot delay time. That's found in "MSCONFIG > Boot.ini"

    If you want to limit the number of Services running in the background (SERVICES not Programs) then you need to check with the "Black Viper" website. BV has been publishing a list of all services, all the way back to XP, that can be either Disabled totally or put into Manual start mode. Fewer services running, means more ram and CPU time for your programs.

    FF? There is a whole sheet of tweaks to FF to make it faster and more efficient. Just Google "make Firefox faster".
    Several of the older tweaks are now a part of FF, by default.

    A fast and efficient PC is not Rocket Science, but it does require a bit of research and work. Eh?
