Add to the list if you can

This is a list to get started, post any you all know of, only requirement is that it must be software and not hardware.

run “msconfig”
Go to advanced settings and select the amount of cores you have in your processor.
"no gui startup" is also faster.
Reduce the “30” “Timeout” to 3 in the boot tab.
Disable any unneeded services, google any services you are unsure of.
Also disable any unneeded start-up programs (Be VERY careful not to disable anything needed)

Go to “my computer”
select “system properties” at the top
select on the left “Advanced system settings”
go to “advanced” tab
select “settings” under “performance”
make decisions inside to speed up your system but be careful what you choose.

Remove unneeded fonts from the font menu in the Control panel.

Regedit registry modifications:
google these before use as good practise as personally I wouldn't trust anyone with my registry unless I personally research first

set “WaitToKillServiceTimeOut” to a value below 12000 (1000 = 1 second)

Also lower resolution wallpapers helps speed up boot time.
