Is there a program that can be installed to be able to know what program takes time to load at startup of Windows?

MSDN's Windows Performance Toolkit is a much better set of tools than the old Bootvis utility. At its most basic, you can use the tools to provide you with a similar graphical display of boot performance which was provided by Bootvis.

And then there is Passmark AppTimer to analyze the startup behaviour of applications.

As for startup management, I strongly recommend Autoruns instead of MSCONFIG (which is NOT a startup manager, but a troubleshooting utility and therefore best left alone).

Soluto can measure the load time of all applications that are set to run on startup. It allows the user to disable an application from startup or delay it from startup.

More information on Soluto.

As of 2016-04-01, Soluto for PC has been shut down. It is no longer being developed and is not available for download on the developer's website. It can still be downloaded from third-party websites.

For your problem, I would remove ALL programs from startup, and slowly add them one by one and see which one causes Windows to really hang. I always avoid running programs on startup to get the fastest startup possible.

Click START, RUN, and enter msconfig and go to the Startup tab to see all programs running on startup. There will be a lot in there that you don't expect.

I was searching a way to do it without doing it manually. I know how to do it manually. The question is about a program to monitor the other program (process) to know which one take time. – Daok Sep 27 '09 at 15:37

As per the question asked I would suggest that you could give Tuneup Utilities 2009 a try.

Personally, I feel it is the best software available in its category.

You could use the Startup manager feature of it to solve your problems. Also, its one-click maintenance feature speeds up the system.
