PC Boot Timer

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This single-purpose program calculates boot time for your PC, although its accuracy depends on system boot requirements.

PC Boot Timer requires no installation. When you start your system, PC Boot Timer loads itself in memory and measures total system boot time. This utility removes itself from memory after all system processes have loaded, and then displays the total boot time.

Unfortunately, the program then takes the opportunity to send you to an Internet site for feedback and product endorsements. The program warns users against using the keyboard or mouse, but some users must do so to correctly load certain processes. This results in an inaccurate result from PC Boot Timer. PC Boot Timer gives the user no indication of the amount of time needed for each part of the boot process. The display of only a total time doesn't help a user pinpoint boot problems.

Some users may find it helpful to know the total boot time for their PC. This freeware accomplishes that slender purpose at the cost of displaying an advertisement.
