Another trick you can try is to delay or stagger your startup programs with another third-party program like Startup Delayer.

With Startup Delayer, you can delay any listed startup program automatically or with a set time. This way, you can have all your startup programs launch automatically, but instead of trying to load all at once, you can prioritize what should load first.

As I mentioned earlier, security software and hardware drivers should load first, then anything goes according to your preference. I recommend staggering heavy impact startup programs you'd wish to keep with different delay times.

Preventing overloading the system by freeing up boot up resource cycles while Windows is initializing, you should be able to control your computer sooner and start with your tasks right away.
