Immediately after you install an operating system on a brand new computer, the average boot times are nothing short of brilliant. However, as time goes by and you install and remove dozens of hundreds of programs, you’ll start noticing that your PC that once used to boot up faster than you put your socks on is getting increasingly sluggish and pauses when it shouldn’t. But how do you define «slow»? Slower than your roommate’s computer? Slower than your office workstation? How does the boot time change when you install this or that program, overclock or upgrade your system components? To find out where you are you’re your load time, you will need a reference point (an average boot time) and a tool that will allow you to measure yours. If you just happened to be looking for such a tool, check out BootRacer!
BootRacer is a free tool that will help you take an accurate measurement of your computer’s boot up times. The software stores the results of your previous races in Windows log files and generates history reports based on the information it collected during previous boot ups. You can run the test only once or make it run every time your operating system loads for accurate statistics. Timing can be taken silently in the background or with the BootRacer window shown on the screen and the results can either be immediately shown to the user or written to log files. The software can also calculate the difference between each boot up time with the best result and save this value to the log file.
If you need a tool that will help you understand how well your computer is performing and what effect your upgrades and fine-tuning have on your OS load time, don’t miss BootRacer!
