What’s the most frustrating thing about your computer? I’d be willing to bet that it’s how long it can take to start up. Even if you have a fairly new PC that opens program quickly and generally operates fast enough for your needs, if you have to wait ages for the desktop to reach a useable state you’re likely to get annoyed before even get started on whatever you switched your computer on for.
Thankfully, there’s a lot you can do to help reduce start up times, and one of my most recent discoveries is Argus Boot Accelerator. This is an intriguing free app that includes a number of options for keeping your boot time to an absolute minimum.
