In this tutorial I am going to go over to speed up your boot time using a single program. Note that the boot time can decrease by a large amount or a small amount. It just depends on how many programs you run on start up.

Required Items: (Details on how to get these below)
1. Soluto

Soluto is a cloud based program with which you can use to do numerous things. In this case I use it for speeding up my boot time. This is my preferred method because for many programs it will give you a description of what is is, and what is does, and then give you a recommended course of action. You do not need to keep this program on your computer for the changes to work, once you initially make the changes it will keep those. Also you will need to make an account, but it is 100% free!
