    Guys, what tweaks can I do to reduce the time my Windows 8 needs to boot faster? I'm at 100 seconds at the moment.

    That's not a good restart time for an SSD. Either you have a lot of startup programs or the AMD e-300 APU/motherboard chipset is bottlenecking the SSD a lot.

    This cpu is extremely slowly. Problem is not apps and ssd. Here picture of startup apps.

    your first problem is you have a lenovo.. ha..

    but why don't do a clean restart and "temporarily" disable all your programs from "msconfig" or in your task manager and startup.. and see how windows does..

    of course disconnect from the internet and then turn off all anti-virus and any programs you have there like utorrent and whatever else those are.. you can probably do this easily with msconfig and start going through the tabs looking for your programs and making sure they are not checked and then restart..

    Do you have App Readiness checked in msconfig "Services"? Or, enabled in Administrative Tools > Services? If so, try disabling it in Administrative Tools >Services" or unchecking it in msconfig "Services", and then reboot. One of my pc's takes 120 seconds to reboot when App Readiness is enabled, but only 5 seconds with it disabled. I can't find a reason why this works, but it's easy and worth a try.

    PS - if this works for you, there is one thing you must remember. If a Windows Update requires a restart, you must enable App Readiness before restarting, for the update to install properly. After reboot for the update, you will have to disable App Readiness Service again for the the pc to resume the faster boot.

    I'm sure some of you have faster out there.. but eat this for now.

    I think it's pretty decent for a laptop.. and a terrible company at that..
