Boot Defragment in Windows XP




We are all aware of the ability to defragment your hard drive,  but did you know that Windows XP also allows you to do a Boot Defrag.

This basically means that all boot files are placed next to each other on the disk drive to allow for faster booting.  By default this option is enabled but some upgrade users have reported that it isn't on their setup.

So best check your system incase.


1.  Start Regedit.
2.  Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction
3.  Select Enable from the list on the right.
4.  Right on it and select Modify.
5.  Change the value to Y to enable and N to disable.
6.  Reboot your computer.
