    Ensure in-house defrag or any 3rd party utilities' defrag is not scheduled or auto-run; only TRIM should exist. I thought I saw a mention of defrag in this thread.

    That's what I thought, then I read 'post login'..and wondered..sounded as if it's a short duration effect AFTER login... @Opcode- could you clarify when this occurs? Thanks
    It's post-login. Actually, I don't have to interact with this PC to login, as I don't have a password set for my personal account. I just go straight to the post-login, which takes about 30 seconds to complete, and then I'm at my desktop.

    I don't think that you can prevent corrupted video files except for possibly excluding them from defrag routine if you use defrag.
    I don't defrag my drives, especially since I moved to SSD. Nobody should defrag their SSD, as that only shortens their life.
    Thanks for the software suggestions.

    Just a note to say that personally I format thumb drives as NTFS if copying video onto them.
    I format most of my thumb drives as NTFS, anyway, but I usually transfer video from my camera card to my computer by using a USB card reader.

    Mmm, and I decided to put all that 16 GB of RAM onto a single stick so I could max out my four memory slots in future upgrades...

    That screen in not actually 'post' login, its 'during' login. What you are seeing is still the sign in screen, but as you (and I) have no password we don't get prompted for one. But it's still the sign in screen, only when the sign in process is complete do you get the desktop.

    As I said earlier, that acrylic blur can be turned off if you like to watch the pictures.

    Yes, thank you, I did that. Why would someone put something like that in there? They go through the trouble of putting a collection of images together, along with the means of displaying them, then they make it impossible to see them by default!

    Maybe the answer is to buy a PC instead of building one? That would avoid lots of troubles, eh?

    FWIW, this is the 'logic' behind the change....

    Totally agree! It's a major annoyance. At we can disable it.

    I found a performance improvement when replacing a single module with 2 identical modules then reset the BIOS from Single-channel memory to Dual-channel memory. Some BIOSes may do it automatically.

    If my goal was avoiding trouble, I would have thrown out all my computers and disappeared on a remote Pacific Island years ago.

    Thank you, I read that yesterday. I understand that's the reasoning, but it seems kind of strange that they put those pictures up there just to turn around and say they are too distracting, so we had better make them illegible. I mean, if the pictures really were a problem, normal people would put an option for turning them off or changing them to something else... like a patch of blurred colors. Maybe Microsoft put the information out somewhere that they were going to make this change, but I didn't get the memo, and I found out about it only by mentioning it here.

    That was one of my considerations when I was putting together my parts list. Perhaps I should have just stuck with 8 GB chips. I'm not likely to add more than 32 GB of RAM to my system, anyway, at least not before my current setup is too obsolete. However, I didn't want to have to set aside 8 GB RAM chips as unusable if I ever did upgrade beyond 32 GB. I don't need much performance, anyway, most of the time. I'm more concerned about moving and storing large amounts (TB) of data than I am in computational speed.
