Currently, the issue of Windows PC with Craplets caused a poor boot up to 2 minutes time has called public attention again.

According to the report that there is a series of tests showed that even the new, called quick-start Windows 7 PC in the pre-loaded with a lot of unnecessary software, which run significantly slower than Macs. Moreover, PC Pro recently was fully test of notebooks versus clean models of several plants and found that Acer, and Sony systems need up to two minutes to startup because of there are too many built-in third-party applications and factory utilities. Furthermore, they also consume or so 1 GB of RAM and 2.4 GB hard drive in Acer's case.

Compare with the above, other Windows PC manufacturers are slightly better. Hewlett-Packard system costs 1 minute 35 seconds to startup, and takes up 1.06 GB of RAM and 2.18 GB of disk space. Dell needs 54 seconds to boot, and occupied 1.18 GB of RAM and a large 3 GB of disk space. The other brands of computers, such as ASUS, Lenovo, Samsung and Toshiba have relatively installed less garbage software, but they are still consume several hundred megabytes of active memory and hard disk space by many unknown reasons.

In contrast, according to the professional test that you just need 49 seconds for a 13-inch MacBook Prot to complete the startup. However, it also has the lowest active memory footprint (289 MB for any system).

Nowadays, Garbage software is known as a value-added way for PC manufacturers, which was often used to subsidize the cost of PC. But in this way it impairs the performance and slows down the speed of the processor and operating system. So as one of users who are harmed by Windows PC for so long time, you will begin a long-time struggle on how to optimize the speed of your PC boot up. Now, have you prepared to get a best registry optimizer to speed up your PC startup?

Maybe some PC vendors pre-install the trial version of BullGuard? He seems to be saying that far too many vendors are installing lots of 'trial' software on their new machines, and effectively slowing the whole thing down and taking up valuable RAM and disk space.

Maybe he was having a bit of a swipe at BullGuard for supplying a trial version???!!!?!? This is the only explanation I can think of for this seemingly misplaced rant :P
