    I'd like you to try something. Type Event Viewer in the start search bar, click event viewer. Drop down the following check marks in Event Viewer: Applications and Services Logs > Microsoft > Windows > Diagnostics-Performance > Operational. Event ID 100 is boot up time, 200 is shutdown, 101 is Antimalware causing boot issues. I'm not sure what it all means, but I believe I'm getting closer to the root cause of this. It may be related to Windows Defender. Disabling it has had no effect on my login/startup so far but I believe I'm onto something.

    I wound up nuking the whole install and starting from scratch. Fortunately, the whole reinstall process is quick and easy for me, since I have all of my documents and games on separate drives. I'm back up and running with virtually all of my software configured again in less than two hours. Hoorah for 130 Mbps Internet.

    Interestingly, the new Windows 10 Education ISO that I downloaded from MSDNAA came standard with 1511. That saved needing to go through the whole upgrade process again, which is nice.

    That's twice this year that I've had to reinstall Windows 10. I've had to reinstall Windows more in the last four months than I otherwise have in the last four years, haha. Hopefully all is good from here, though. *fingers crossed*

    I decided to make a few more changes slowly to make my desktop comfortable. I made these changes one at a time and restarted to see if any of them caused this issue.

    I believe I found the problem: Taskbar auto-hiding. When I have my taskbar auto-hidden, the login is very slow. Without taskbar auto-hiding, login takes under two seconds.

    I don't have that enabled on my side so it's NOT my cause to the problem ... PS: I find the auto-hide a stupid feature

    It's on almost every settings page, put it doesn't stop anything from being changed.

    It's almost like someone else is in charge now

    Unbelievable!!!! I didn't even have to reinstall windows 10. I haven't actually done that yet. Disabling auto-hide the taskbar fixed my login times! I'm astonished. I don't have the some settings are managed by your organization thing though... I did disable windows defender so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with anything. In any case, thanks, Kodiack!

    Pardon my french but this is un-****ing-believable! I just tried that and it frickin works! What on earth does the taskbar and its auto-hiding feature have to do with windows login procedure? It most definitely has to be a bug caused by the new start menu introduced with the 1511 build...funny thing is I don't even use the MS one! I've been using startisback since windows 8, and now i'm on startisback++ which is the windows 10 version. Anyway a great thank you for this, it solved the problem in my case and now login is blazing fast again. All of that without having to reinstall windows again. I hope MS fixes that anyway...I don't know about you guys but I love the smell of auto-hiding taskbar in the morning!

    Well now fine, since more than 1 confirmed this, I decided to enable auto-hide ... did a restart ... then disabled it again with another restart and have done about 10 restarts since and I must say, so far so good ... holding thumbs

    Thank you Kodiack for finding this solution. I've tried every trick in the book to get to an solution but I really never would have thought that it could be this.
