BootRacer is a light-weight, easy to use and convenient tool for monitoring the Windows PC boot time and controlling over startup programs. The main approach of BootRacer is an ability to exclude a user password timeout time from the calculated total.

How does BootRacer save my time and my life?

  • BootRacer calculates the clear Windows boot-up time (without password timeout).
  • It monitors your PC's boot time and notifies you about any speed degradation.
  • BootRacer measures Total Time used by startup programs at every boot.
  • You will know which programs slow down Windows boot-up.
  • You can easily disable slow down programs from Windows startup.

NB: Lifetime license with no updates and tech support, no commercial usage.

Some people have problems with registering BootRacer.

Remember, you must download BootRacer only from Givewayoftheday web site!
If you want to get a local translation, use the localized version from BootRacer's web site.
After that install Givewayoftheday's version over installed version.
Thank you!

How long it takes Windows to fire up is a bragging point in some circles, but I think for most people it's just one of those things you live with -- if it takes *that* long, go get a cup of coffee. OTOH, if you're used to a device [PC, laptop etc.] with Windows on a SSD, starting Windows on something like a less expensive laptop with a slow hard drive might seem to take an agonizing long time. BootRacer Premium *might* help you speed that up a *little* bit, but don't expect miracles.

Running win10, Settings -> Apps -> Startup lists startup apps & their impact. Go to the Startup tab in Task Mgr., right click one of the column headers, & select what you want to display, e.g. Disk I/O, plus you can sort on any column. Not as complete as BootRacer Premium, but it may be all you need.

The biggest boost comes from not shutting your device completely off, using sleep or hibernation or Fast Startup in power settings etc. Next is to have Windows installed on a SSD -- the rest of your software can be on a regular hard drive, so a small, $20 SSD will do. Boot up times using a slow vs. fastest SSD doesn't seem to matter. Autoruns is still king when it comes to what starts with Windows, but be careful of using the app to turn stuff off -- it is possible to break your copy of Windows.

Hi mike.

To buy an SSD to put our OS on is surely a good thing and, by my own experience, I may say that the buying of a second SSD on which our OS's pagefile will be transfered will also bring a significative boost to the whole.

There is also something very important here in order to have a fast computer : the OS with which you are working should never get any "older" than something like 3 or 6 months : you achieve this by always restoring the last OS's image you took, every 3 to 6 months, and to update this image very quickly before taking a new image of your OS.

Any image of your OS should not be "older" than a couple of days of normal use, so to always have a kind of very "fresh installed OS" at each time you have to restore an "old" image.

I may say that this type of gestioning of the computer allows mine, which is 7 years old now, running a simple Core i5 3570K with 8 GB memory, to achieve a boot time which is better than 98% of all the other users of the software "Glary Utilities Free", as Glary Utilities confirms at almost every boot.

But there's a lot of other things which needs to be done before achieving the best times we can, a good knowledge and a good maintenance of it are preferably needed, and I don't pretend to achieve the best possible.

Unfortunately, after installing the program and the Polish language the license key turned out to be incorrect. What I should do now...???

CCleaner is freeware and already has the essential features built-in.
Go to Tools - Startup - (These programs are set to run when your computer starts)
You will see all the programs listed under Enabled (Yes or No) and the menu keys Enable, Disable and Delete to empower you to tidy up your startup files and boost boot up times. You also have the option to delete errant or unwanted program files easily with a click.

kokobin, according to the news story (https://www.ghacks.net/2019/09/25/microsoft-blocks-official-ccleaner-domain-on-its-answers-site/) "Microsoft blocks official CCleaner domain". I don't know why or how that may affect things, but thought you might want to know.

Attempted, thanks for that link, very useful. I still use ccleaner but v 5.269.xxx...on Win 7Pro ...works like a charm. Think it is the newer versions that have caused trouble and then there is win x in its many forms with all their problems. Also if folks want to speed up their boot times a good place to start is to delete or shut off all the telemetry junk. Amazing how much faster my laptop is since I got rid of that stuff. You can find info on how to do that at Ask Woody's website among others.

I tried this in a previous giveaway and found it significantly slowed down the boot up while tracing boot events so that in itself skewed the results. I did not find it useful and uninstalled it and managed my bootup sequence using my knowledge of how windows boots up and launches different classes of autorun entries.

Interesting program.
PROS: I found out that there are some programs starting up and running that I don't want starting up at all. I'm not surprised that some of my security software are time hogs.
CON: This would be more useful if all the programs were sorted according to time use, with the worst offenders listed first. As it is, all of my programs are shuffled in no particular order.

Nevertheless, this is a keeper for me.

Wow. My system booted up completely in 43 Secs when I deleted this offering.

After installing and running Bootracer and then rebooting my computer almost locked up completely with my StartX menu flashing on/off continuously and eventually my computer booted with a message from Bootracer telling me my system was VERY slow.

Not any more its not. Bye Bye Boot racer.

BootRacer will only give you the information on what is being booted at startup and the time it took for each one. It only counts the time at Windows starting, till it's ready for you to use and not the bios time are password lag time. This software will not speed up your boot time. There are only 2 ways to speed things up. You manually turning off items at startup (you better know what your doing!) are with a 3rd party's software. There are many good freeware programs out there that can help you speed up your boot time. Between them and BootRacer, you'll be speeding along. Thanks to GOTD and BootRacer for the offer

Jim C, well you can alter the bootup autoruns to start in differnt ways... like using a delayed startup so the service starts after the desktop has arrived and is usable or in the case of normal executables that are NOT needed for bootup or normal use but are nice to have can be started 2 or 3 mins after login using scheduled task... Those would speed up the operational boot to usable desktop with the frills loading at a far more leasurly pace.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

TK, I completely agree with you. I've done that by running msconfig delaying things not needed at start up. I've even turned off some useless Windows Services items. A warning is still needed for people who don't know what they're doing. They could create some big headaches for themselves.
