    Good point with the time to install all his programs but, soon crackerjack will need to decide.

    Hi,
    Have you any third party AV program installed? If you have, just uninstall it and see whether it helps, too lazy to read all the posts on a Sunday morning, if I have missed you*posting the details of your AV.

    slow start


    Hi friends
    Frankly loathe to do clean install as I have two "expensive" design programmes on there that are dongol / crypkey protected and whilst I could "get them back"it would be lengthy process --and would hate the inconvenience and pain !!!!
    At the moment apart from lengthy start up boot from cold --all isworking fine - but to be frank cant think of any particularbenefits gained from changing to Win 10 pro from Win 7 Pro and frankly wishId left well alone and not fallen for the "hype" Got Brtummies suggestion /switched off Bitdefender and tried again -Didnt help sadly
    Have then (ith AV still "off" tried a system restore via Win 10
    This was unsuccessful as it saidit couldnt access a file -possibly due to A V prog so switch it off (it was already switched off) Triying again at moment. With no3rd party AV it iswanting to update Windows protection
    Thought Id try system restore then and revert to a restore point "before" the Critical Windows update yesterday that resurrected the 22min boot time that I had just overcome by using the system repair via a Win10 iso

    Frankly its all so ****frustrating as all was fine in win7 but I fell for the free upgrade offer and the fact theyd introduced anew all singing and dancing.........

    So much info on PC and to be honest if I cant solve soon - I`ll suffer the slow boot and then carry on with life as it should be afterwards
    Files / folders etc are backed up and COULD be recovered but software no - and if I took the plunge -it worries me that there may bev a problem with those on compatibility etc (though Im told there SHOULDNT be !HaHa There wasnt to be a prob with the upgrade either \
    All advice points to the clean install but at the moment if I could get back to the 90second boot I had after repair install yesterday I`D BE OPENING A BOTTLE OR TWO!!

    Advice / suggestions / and or helpgreatly appreciated but wanted to make all aware of the full circumstances

    sorry noticed bad typing - but response done on tablet (small keys /big fingers!!!
