I'm new here but hoping that you, guys will stop me from smashing my PC against the wall because I am close to do it or.... see my psychiatrist.
This is my story: For years I was happy user of Win7 Ultimate. I did ignore Win 8 upgrade because mixed opinions on it. But when Win10 showed up on horizon I put my eye on it and after many pros and little less cons I decided to upgrade to Win10. System did examine my PC (a good few years old already) and did not see anything against. So I've done it. Unfortunately I had to go back to Win7 as my Radeon 1950x series graphic card was not supported by AMD driver.
So I went back to Win7 but a little pin was still sticking in my ......
A few weeks later I've purchased newer graphic card (Radeon R7 240 series) which has Win10 drivers and went back to Win10.
After about 2 weeks of total happiness my horror has started. BSOD, BSOD, BSOD. One after one. And horrible long time to final opening of the Desktop. Average time about 45 minutes to one hour. Yes, I am not a liar.
I do not remember when it happened. I can only speculate that it happened after installing one of updates. But I am not sure. After doing huge research on the Web I found myself in the middle of nowhere. So many different cases. Which one could match mine? Of course my desperate decision was to go back to Win7 again but guess what? This option disappeared. Now I know that it stays in computer for certain time. So it was too late for this option. Obviously I might go back and install Win7 from scratch but, oh boy, I would need to retrieve so much data. I did not and I do not want to do it.
So, after research, I decided to reinstall Win10 using Microsoft option found on the Web. And it worked. After spending a whole day yesterday (8AM to midnight) my comp finally started to work properly..... to third turn on. And a whole story begun again. It took me 1 hour 15 minutes to get to this place since I started my PC. I was suspecting that my AVG anti virus causes this thing so I did uninstall it . Only Windows firewall on turned on while reinstalling.
One more thing: after reinstalling my comp froze once so I was forced to turn it off. Second time was turned off normally and then third time came this morning.
I've done two reports during this "start up session" using dm log collector. One in safe mode and one when I finally was able to work normally.
Here they are:
So I am asking all Win10 GURUS for help. What causes all this c...p in my comp? How to avoid it? And what to do when such thing happens again - I mean how to speed start up?
I'm begging you, folks.
