Is there a way to know what program slows down startup?

Is there a program that can be installed to be able to know what program takes time to load at startup of Windows?

"MSDN's Windows Performance Toolkit is a much better set of tools than the old Bootvis utility. At its most basic, you can use the tools to provide you with a similar graphical display of boot performance which was provided by Bootvis.

And then there is Passmark AppTimer to analyze the startup behaviour of applications.

As for startup management, I strongly recommend Autoruns instead of MSCONFIG (which is NOT a startup manager, but a troubleshooting utility and therefore best left alone)."

"For your problem, I would remove ALL programs from startup, and slowly add them one by one and see which one causes Windows to really hang. I always avoid running programs on startup to get the fastest startup possible.

Click START, RUN, and enter msconfig and go to the Startup tab to see all programs running on startup. There will be a lot in there that you don't expect."
