Good find, cheers 🍻
Hi guys. My mother has this problem on her Dell inspiron with Windows 8 (and Windows 10 after the upgrade).
She never hid the taskbar and I tried:
I activated the "hidden bar" on taskbar properties; Reboot; Still lag on boot.
So I disabled "hidden bar"; Reboot and lag didn't fix.
The laptop hasn't a SSD but the boot is very slow
Was this problem addressed in the latest update 10586.17 ?? ... just for clarification
10586.17? I didn't get that update yet in the Netherlands. Perhaps later this day. But did it fix the real problem. Thanks to Kodiack I can work know with 1511 but the real problem hasn't been fixed by microsoft.
Nope, it hasn't
I just did a restart & the problem is back for me. Have to do the whole enable auto-hide - restart - disable auto-hide - restart again
I downloaded the update manually kb3116908 but when I want to install it it says that this update is not applicable to my computer. That is strange because I've got a dual boot. On one drive I have windows 10 pro and on the other I have the same but in insiders preview mode. On that one I received the update. Also on my wife's computer I received the update.
So on the same computer I did receive the update for the insiders preview but I can't install it on the normal win 10.
I didnt even bother to install previous iterations of the Service Update of November. I have only installed the LASTEST one issued by windows update last week (here in Germany) , and i have been having a plethora of problems since i done that.
I had to wipe all my GPU Drivers multiple times and install in different order (OPTIMUS system !!)
I had my first blue screen (or the windows 10 equivalent of it) after it was installed and i simply watched a flash5 video in chrome
WLAN drivers ****ed up
Computer screen going black while OS continues to run in background (that is actually a old bug since windows 8 on this machine!!)
while having chrome idle on the youtube page with player showing the final frame of a watched video on screen.
but new was that my CPU going full load caused in that case and heating up like crazy!!!
I had issues with explorer.exe hanging , like right clicking C Drive and task hanging, executing scandisk from the drive properties "TOOLS" windows , hanging , also i had the exact same problem with slow login screen (this laptop used to be on the desktop in less than 6 seconds from power up, and is running a 840 EVO with the latest firmware).
I have never discovered any malware on this system ..EVER.
This Service update is literally a piece of shit im sorry for my language.
And yes Disabling Auto Hide of Taskbar did make the slow login go away...for now. But that is 100% just a workaround for something extremely messed up in the core of this update.
And another disturbing thing is .that although updating drivers through windows update is ENABLED , running the problem solve to search for device problems always wants me to reboot the system to fix something (of course it doenst tell you WHAT it wants to fix, but fails because it says windows update would not be configured
to get drivers...which is BS). I then discovered that my SYSTEM components under device manager had never received substantial updates and right clicking them "update driver" did initiate driver downloads and changes.
Which is astonishing given the amounts of updates this system has had from window 8 to 8.1 to 10 which went
flawless until this horrible service update.
