    My computer is using windows vista ultimate 32. I just wondering how can I boost the speed of boot cuz it takes longer to boot when I turn on and shutdown my computer.
    Furthermore, I also noticed that when I right-click at 'My Computer' icon, it takes more than 15s to show up. Have any one faced this problem? I have tried several methods to speed the show up of 'My Computer' right-click but none succeed.

    You can also:

    Turn of System Restore
    Deactivate Shadow Copies (did a huge improvement on my rig concerning
    boot speed and Vistas unsatisfiable disk space munching)

    Downside: You have no system restore features after that so you should
    use external imaging software (eg Acronis) to make a backup of your
    System drive.

    I still doubt though that you will be on your desktop in less than a minute..in
    fact thats already pretty normal speed to boot a vista that is in full operation
    has software installed, drivers etc. Especially Video Drivers do consume a
    long time of the boot process, also you can check if assigning a fixed IP
    Adress to your network adapter (eg: 192.168.0.10 subnet:255.255.255.0)
    speeds your booting up.

    If you would take more than 2-3 minutes on a fast computer to be fully
    operational i would maybe start to think theres something wrong.

    Quite helpful, thanks.

    I'm using AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.1,
    with 2G ram DDR3, Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT.

    I think my computer should boot less than a minute with that specification, where it isn't, hence making me wonder why. So, I want to know way to speed up my ultimate vista.
