    Programs load slower than windows 7

    So I upgraded finally after I felt that windows 10 was on the right track. I noticed my programs load 5 to 8 seconds slower than with windows 7. I have 2 ssd drives and sometimes when I am searching for a file it will tell me "WORKING ON IT". This never happened with windows 7. I must say as far as gaming I have seen some minor improvements with windows 10, I'm assuming that's because of the way the gpu and cpu are transferring information.

    Anyway to the original issue I know its not a huge problem but has anyone else noticed this if so have you fixed it?

    For me, Win 10 is faster than Win 7. Maybe your Indexing Locations need to be re-built.

    Is your system running all up-to-date drivers? Windows 7 didn't have the "working on it" message, it would just delay, so is it possible that they do open at the same time, but your feeling it is longer because of the message?
