Win one of the 10 licenses for BootRacer!

BootRacer is a small utility which solves a problem that for the last twenty years, Microsoft has not. BootRacer gives you control over which of your programs start automatically when Windows boots.

At the click of a button, BootRacer will delay the initiation of those startup programs which you've decided don't need to start simultaneously with Windows. You can easily disable the startup of any program without any risk to your PC, because BootRacer is completely safe. And most importantly, BootRacer makes it easy to revert any changes you make, by giving you up to 1,000 undo steps.

BootRacer shows you how much boot time can be saved, should you decide to disable the auto-startup of your programs, thereby empowering you to make well-informed decisions. BootRacer also gives you control over the order in which your programs start.

System Requirements:

Windows XP/ Vista/ 2008/ 7/ 8/ 8.1/ 10/ 11


Greatis Software



Licence details:



The program is available for $39.95 , but the winners of our contest will get it for free.

I hoped this program should give detailed information and timings about various Windows boot processes, like Bootvis did for Windows XP, but one can simply get most of the reported info of Bootracer with Autoruns (or msconfig) and a stopwatch. Unfortunately not a keeper for me.

Windows Boot Manager (aka. Xbootmgr) is part of the Windows Performance Toolkit https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/test/wpt/
It is effectively the successor of Bootvis, see here: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/test/wpt/optimizing-performance-and-responsiveness-exercise-2

I tried to get Boot Racer on the last Giveaway, downloaded it to my pc,then my computer got a virus so had to reinstall windows 11 & i couldn't re-enter my licence details. I did contact Boot racer who wouldn't let me reinstall it either, even tho i had a licence number (and registered email) from the give away. So fingers crossed now for another licence key as i thought this software was brilliant !
