    Have a really weird startup issue

    Ever since I installed the Fall CU, whenever I reboot, it takes upwards of 3-5 minutes to get to the desktop. I've got 'gadgets' that appear on the right side of the screen (CPU usage, network meter, clock) so when I get to the desktop and am able to do anything (sometimes the desktop appears and it's 2-3 minutes later before I can do anything) I always have to right-click and then select 'gadgets' to make them appear.

    Recently I installed a new Corsair H80i water cooling system on the PC. After installation, I powered the PC on and, wonder of wonders, the desktop appeared within 45 seconds and I was able to do everything on it - even the gadgets appeared without me doing anything. Thinking this was a fluke, I shutdown the PC, waited for about 1 minute, and powered on. Bingo, desktop and gadgets in 45 seconds.

    BUT, this only works if I do a 'shutdown', not a 'restart'. If I 'restart' it's back to the 5 minute thing. I'm using a Gigabyte mobo, so, for any power up (power button press, or system restart), power comes on for about 2 seconds, goes off for about 2 seconds, and then resumes (this is a Gigabyte mobo BIOS thing).

    Any ideas out there on the issue using 'restart' vs 'shutdown'? Since the power is removed from the mobo for both sequences, although less time for a 'restart', memory should be cleared (right) but this has got me stumped.

    Shutdown saves the current state of the pc and restart does a clean start so its something on start have you checked taskmanager and see what takes the time it gives startup impact on items
