How important is boot-up speed and application responsiveness to the buyer experience? The answer
is quite simple: the time spent waiting for a computer to boot up or for applications to start up
is time spent not using a device, enjoying it and all it can do for them.
Waiting too long of an
extended time can begin to impart a negative image of a manufacturer’s product.
In a corporate setting, boot-up and application responsiveness can have a direct impact on user
productivity. This also reflects, from the corporate standpoint, upon a manufacturer’s product.
It is no surprise, then, that both of these problems are notable complaints of Windows users –
and as the system is used, more applications and data are added, and profiles changed, they become
Fortunately, there are cost effective technologies to solve these problems and keep
the systems running like new.

HyperBoot® boot time optimization software is an industry-leading software product that, when
installed on a computer, accelerates full computer start-up and boots completely into Windows.
Test results using HyperBoot (as measured with Microsoft® Velocity Test Suite) have
demonstrated up to over 30 percent improvement of "boot to desktop" and over 40 percent for
"boot to complete."
HyperBoot Key Benefits Include:
HyperBoot operates completely in the background, requiring no interaction from the end-user and having
no impact on system resources. Out-of-the-box speeds are significantly faster. Boot times normally
lengthen as the computer is used - but HyperBoot maintains an optimal boot-up time over the life of the
system by ongoing tracking of boot times. When warranted, the boot plan is updated based on actual I/O
from recent boots.
HyperBoot works on netbooks, tablets, notebooks and desktop systems running Microsoft Windows 7 or XP
operating systems, and can be applied to all existing and future laptops, notebooks, netbooks, and
- Significant reduction in boot-time
- Automatically maintains optimal boot-times as system changes
