The HP Boot Optimizer is preinstalled on many HP machines, but can also be downloaded from their website. It determines which programs are required to start with Windows, regardless of whether the program defaults to an automatic load. If a program is set to start with the operating system but the Boot Optimizer deems it unnecessary, it will not start until manually opened. The HP Boot Optimizer decreases the start time required by Windows.
