Windows 7 Startup & Shutdown Times

Posted on November 5, 2009 at 11:51 PM

It's been a week or so since installing Windows 7 on my desktop computer. I have all the software that I need for now, and have about eight programs starting up with the system. These programs are:

Live Messenger

Avira Antivir



Google Talk


Sidebar Gadgets (Comes with Win7)

Bitmeter 2

As mentioned before, here are the system specs:

Acer Aspire Desktop

AMD Athlon 64 x2 3600+ 2Ghz


Main Hard Drive= 250GB Hitachi SATA

GeForce 7300 GT Video Card

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit, Clean Install

When starting the computer, it takes about one minute before the desktop appears, and a few more seconds beyond that for the computer to be usable. Below is a video of the startup and shutdown process.
