How can I make Windows XP boot faster?

You can make Windows XP boot faster by 5 – 15 seconds (on some machines).

To do so do the following:

  1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe).
  2. Locate the following key in the registry:

  1. Make sure you backup the keys by exporting them to a .reg file.
  2. On the EnablePrefetcher value, change the setting from 3 to 5 (decimal).
  3. Close the registry editor.
  4. Restart your computer.

Note: Whatever you do DO NOT install a tool called BOOTVIS from Microsoft, unless youre absolutely sure of what youre doing and have good knowledge of the tool and its use.
