    I read on microsoft that they no longer support the download of bootvis. My friend told me it does nothing for your computer and windows already does basiclly what boot vis does. Is this true?


    Thank You,

    Yes, ask long as you leave the Task Scheduler and Prefetch settings to default, it will automatically optimize your bootfile layout. It takes 3 reboots for this to happen IIRC.

    The only thing I've ever used bootvis for is to diagnose long bootup delays to see which driver(s) was/were at fault.
