Getting startup programs to start serially

Getting startup programs to start serially

It occurs to me that one of the reasons that bootup is so slow on some machines is that several startup programs are loading at the same time, causing lots of head seeks on the hard drive. It is essentially the same problem as occurs when you have a hard drive that needs to be defragmented.

I've tried Startup Delayer in the past for this. But beware, I found it didn't really end up speeding up the PC that much since basically until each program is loaded, the PC isn't very useful anyways.
