    Two system restores, and boot/login has become glacially slow


    I had posted https://www.tenforums.com/performanc...m-restore.html last week - no responses yet - about a sort-of-took-care-of-itself situation. Although I wouldn't mind hearing about getting the start button/menu to work again, or why we had what I have since discovered was the "signed in with a temporary profile" issue.

    Dealing with issues described in that above-referenced post, I twice tried to roll the computer back using System Restore. This failed - I got a notice from System Restore saying so - although then the computer was "better."

    However, the boot time has gotten much slower, and the login really bad. I never timed either, but both were fast enough that I'd not pay attention to them before, and now - well, really slow.

    Since she tends to restart her computer at the end of the day, the reboot time isn't as big a deal - the computer is ready to be logged into when she goes to it the next morning. From the time the login password is entered to the time the desktop is visible is a minute or more, and then another minute or two - haven't timed this - go by before clicking on an icon launches a program, or before anything responds immediately as one would expect.

    Also, the right-click context menus come up very slowly.

    For the three problems (slow boot, slow login-to-ready, slow right-click context menus), could someone patiently offer useful steps to address each of these?

    Again, a reminder that Malwarebytes gives us a zero-malware scan again and again, so whatever the problem is, it's not that.

    Have you tried creating a new user/profile and confirming that everything is normal there ?

    No, I haven't.

    If successful in doing so, would there then be a way to port her profile to the new profile?

    But also, the slow boot time would be independent of profile, I think, correct?

    I think you should create the new user first and then see what the situation is when the new profile/user is booted, and go from there.
    There are techniques on the web that can help to salvage the profile, if that's what the issue is

    Will push this off to the weekend, since it's my wife's laptop, and both she and I are occupied in the evening during the week.
