    Taskbar menus lag

    I have some kind of lag opening desktop taskbar , it only happens on first boot or while coming back from suspend.
    my pc is i7 6700k 16gb ram and ssd
    i tried to disable lan and problem still persist

    is it normal on windows 10 to be so laggy to open a menu?
    thank you

    That leaves you without any anti-virus though, not a good tradeoff.

    I'll try disabling as a test too though.

    I just tried disabling Windows Defender Real time protection and poof, response for toolbars on the Taskbar is now instant.

    You definitely found a bug. Now I need to look for another AV programs to replace Defender. Did you find one to use?

    Edit: I just installed ESET Nod 32 Trial and no lag with it so it's definitely specific to Windows Defender. I;m going to send this via Feedback to MS.

    I dont think its a bug. Probably after a windows restart defender checks all files on the toolbar before show it. So it takes a bit of cpu time and becomes on lag. But it sucks :)

    Agreed, I hate it. Been fighting this for a long time, really glad you found the ultimate cause!
