As the name suggests I need some help with my boot speed. This is weird. its fine booting BIOS to booting windows but then takes an age to get to the point where you are able to do everything I want to do (i.e. boot steam, google chrome, Itunes etc) And the only things that I have that start up automatically are mouse, keyboard, sound card, kaspersky and graphics card software. But say I'm in game in CSS or TF2 and when the map changes I'll be the first or second player actually in game and waiting for others... So I don't understand really. I've had a twiddle in msconfig, but only turned off the things I thought I defiantly didn't really need (but that is only one or two things).
So if any of you guys have got some tips (other than getting an SSD/hybrid hard drive as these are on my list for when money isn't so tight ) I'd be much obliged.
