Can anyone tell me if there is a version of Bootvis that will work with Vista. I have used Bootvis previously onXP and it worked really well however, it wont work on the Vista Home Basic I have.

I would be grateful for any assistance.

Does not look like it.. This is from a white paper:

System Startup Performance Instrumentation
Windows XP includes tracing capabilities for measuring and recording several phases of system startup and resume. This tracing must be explicitly enabled to be used, and the resulting trace data must be post-processed to extract meaningful information. Microsoft provides a standalone tool named Bootvis that enables system startup and resume tracing and displays graphical and tabular views of the results.
Windows Vista includes enhanced resume tracing instrumentation and provides summary results of system resume transition times in the system event log. Enhancements to resume tracing in Windows Vista include:
"      System resume tracing is on by default; it is not necessary to explicitly enable it.
"      Every system resume transition is recorded in the system event log.
"      System resume time can be viewed in Windows Event Viewer, without using external tools.
"      Tools external to the operating system can access and leverage system resume tracing information by reading the system event log.

dear sir even for win xp it isn't usful any more coz each three days the win xp and the vista as will find an idle time of 15 min to run a background program that make the disk layout optimatation and the prefich calculation to make the startup faster so you can defrag the c drive and leave the pc idle and every think will be very good

Have you seen it first hand?  If he wont give you a copy of free software then it is something to be suspicious about.

Actually in this case the solution is that it is not available for Vista.  The white paper I posted was pretty clear on that.  It might not be the solution you had hoped for but it is in fact a solution to the question.

If no points are to be awarded then I would suggest that a PAQ with no refund be the next option.  The question is valid and the answer is valid.

PAQ with no refund means that the question is not deleted but added to the knowledge base so that if others in the future have the same question they can find it and see what the answers were to that question.  No refund means that no experts were awarded points but that you are not refunded your points because you did not respond back with either more unanswered questions or reasonable responses.  Sometimes the only answer is that it is not possible.

Here is the EE guide to closing a question. http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi407

I am unconcerned with the points but if my answer is the correct answer than it should be selected.
