Last week I installed the new version of Speed Startup. Executing this version I got some surprising results:
1. If during rebuild startup you cancel your internet connection, the rebuild process freezes and you have to cancel the execution using the task manager. Is the internet connection necessary for rebuilding?
2. When checking the Startup Services you will find some services checked that have been formerly pointed out as manually started. So you have to uncheck these again.
3. The most surprising feature is Unused Fonts. In Word 2003 I got some 193 fonts. There are some more in Excel 2003. I declared about 90 as fonts that I don't use. So I tried to delete them. Deleting a lot of these got me not problems. But more than 50 fonts I could not delete. Some of these I could uncheck, but they remained nevertheless. Others showed no check window, but simply remained existing. So I restarted my computer and tried again. Some of the not deleted fonts suddenly were deleted and didn't show again. Others could now be deleted, but not all. So I restarted again and again until there was a rest of 8 fonts. And I then got the hammer. After the restart the lower half of the monitor showed green. So I had the upper half as normal with some icons placed anywhere else and the lower half als clean green. Using the mouse I was able to put the separating line down, but I didn't get back the task line. Having created a restore point before installing Speed Startup I took this restore point to remove these errors. I installed Speed Startup again and avoided now to delete any font. But I have no explanation for this failure if not this one:
Before installing Speed Startup I changed the registry. I put the ClearPageFileAtShutDown - Parameter in HLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
vom zero to 1, another method to speed up the computer start.
P.S. I hope I have made myself clear. My mother language is German and I lately haven't had much practice in using English.
P.S. #2 If you try to update the database from http://www.sysinfo.org
, don't cancel the internet connection during formatting the new file. You will have to start again.
