What is Quick Boot Manager?  (from Panasonic)

Quick Boot Manager can reduce the boot-up time of the device down to approximately 15 seconds.


Quick Boot Manager is a software program developed by Panasonic. The most common release is 3.1.1100.0, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The primary executable is named qbmgr.exe. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 852.55 KB (873,008 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 65% of users of Quick Boot Manager come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Canada.
