RapidBoot HDD Accelerator and Shield In Lenovo ThinkPad

Lenovo developed 2 utilities to reduce boot time: RapidBoot HDD Accelerator and RapidBoot Shield.

RapidBoot Shield is known to create delays to the startup process, as it may prevent the loading of applications or services critical to the system startup, in ThinkPad laptops using Microsoft Windows 7.

Lenovo has withdrawn this utility and recommends its uninstalling as first step while troubleshooting slow boot.
