Boot Time of Anti-Virus Software that Slows Down Your PC

   


Have you ever questioned how much time your anti-virus solution adds to the boot process? This helpful chart from the folks over at Soluto shows you the answer, with some amazing results.

According to Soluto, which is a cloud-based solution that allows you to control multiple computers, servers, and even mobile devices over the web, the average boot time of a computer is 3 minutes. You can download Soluto and check it out for yourself to see how much time added to the boot process by your anti-virus, or if you don’t want to use Soluto to manage your computer, you can also use the Event Viewer to figure out how long your PC takes during the boot process. To open the Event Viewer type “event viewer” into the Windows Start Menu search box. If you want to go old-school and low-tech, you can always just use a watch.

The information in the graph is generated from millions of PCs running the Soluto software, which obviously contains older computers as well, so the chart is based on an average across all computers. It does go to show that some anti-virus products will slow down your PC more than others, which is useful and interesting information.

Have you detected a difference in boot time from your anti-virus product? Measure it yourself and give a comment.
