Download the Performance toolkit and it can test for all kind of speed issues.
when i set up my laptop windows 7 was fairly new and it was easier for a number off resions to install xp
i think windows 7 is now a good choice for a car pc and should be easier to use with the touch screen.
however my current pc is running a solid state and boots in 16 seconds.
my home win 7 is also running an ssd but takes alot longer to boot despite being much more powerfull!
the thing that made a big difference to the boot time off the xp pc is a program called boot vis
its a brilliant little Microsoft program that im sure a lot off you are familiar with
dose anyone know how to do the same thing in windows 7?
any programs that are similar?
or a list off services i can disable?
or maybe a program like nlite? that can make a windows 7 "lite" . iso?
well its not really a speed issue as such. i want to speed up the pcs boot time. will this optamize the boot drive and run start up traces
