How to Make Vista Boot Faster

By Trevor Johnson

Vista has been seen as a slower Windows program, but how do you make vista boot faster? A lot of people when asked to choose Vista or XP as an operating system choose XP. They claim that this new Vista does not work as well as the traditional XP operating system.

Personally, I think the main reason why Vista is looked down upon is because there are not that many tools out there to make the program better. Windows XP has BootVis and TuneXP if there happens to be any problems with the system that causes it to slow down. But, both systems are not compatible with Vista.

The best course of action to take in making Vista boot faster is to defrag your system. When you open new files or download anything new, the files spread themselves along your hard drive. When this happens, it takes space away that you could be using on that hard drive to make the computer faster. Defragmenting your hard drive condenses files together so you have more free space to operate your computer with. You can even place the boot up files at the start of the drive to cause the system to come on faster.

Some people say that you can manual defrag your system by utilizing "defrag c:-b" as the command prompt. This command will defrag your c drive and allow Vista to boot faster. It is your personal preference if you want to utilize this method to fix the problem you are having with the Windows Vista program. The thing with the program is there is no status bar so you have to wait until the computer prompts that the defragmentation has ended.

Hopefully some of these tips were useful in helping you solve your Vista problem. If all of this does not work, you may want to try to take your computer to a specialist to get it fixed. Network administrators can work wonders on a computer.
