Windows 10: First boot after monthly updates unresponsive

    First boot after monthly updates unresponsive

    Hey All.

    Wonder if anyone could suggest a way to analyze (to understand why this is like that) the following problem my computer has been having for few months now:

    After monthly updates, on first boot and on first boot only, after I login, Windows is unresponsive. If I do reset / power off or Alt-F4 -> enter on desktop (have to wait long time for this to actually happen) then next boot everything seems fine.

    Last time it happened, I managed to open Task Manager; it took a very long time to start. CPU utilization was showing 98-100% - and I couldn't get any more info than that. Sorting by CPU % or going in Details tab or Performance just hanged TM. I didn't have ‘show kernel times’ enabled at that time, so no way I could’ve seen if this is caused by system process anyways. Disk / Network / GPU / Memory didn't show anything unusual, only CPU utilization was high.

    I obviously can't make this happen at will. It's more or less monthly thing, which makes it difficult to analyze.

    So, here's the thing. I would like to find out why this is happening or in other words, come next Black Tuesday, I'd like to be prepared.


    (edit: sorry for grammar - tried obvious typos fist, but now feel to lazy to edit futher.)

    Hi LightlySparklin. Welcome to the TenForums @LightlySparklin

    You didn't mention if you had been through the normal Maintenance activities and you really gave the forum no details on your device. (HDD / SDD, memory, processor)

    There are boots and then there are boots. Power on, if you have not customized, is not the same boot as restart. Restart gets you a fresh copy of windows, power down and up gets you Windows Fast Startup.

    Are the boot issues there when you restart, or power up or both?

    Which version and build of Windows 10 are you on, windows key + R, type winver, enter.

    Have you performed a Windows Disk Cleanup and if using an HDD a check of fragmentation?

    Have you run chkdsk /f on you storage drive? How many drives do you have in device?

    While a drastic step sometimes a clean install can resolve some evils. Do you have a lot of third party software or customized software?

    Before trying any diagnostics ensure you have your data backed up and boot media available just in case.
