    I must say that I've noticed some slowdowns on both my laptops since 1803 got installed. I don't know if it's because of Windows itself or maybe it has something to do with all the Spectre/Meltdown things going on lately. I haven't checked if my system is patched for those, but it could be the reason.

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    My temps seem to be slightly higher, for no apparent reason. Even backed off the OC from 4.8 > 4.7. Same. Ambient is still cool in the office ~68°F. Fans are the same speed.

    The big April Update caused my boot-up time to slow significantly. (I turn my HP Pavilion Desktop off cold every night)

    Used to boot up in 55-65 seconds. Now it takes 140 to 175 seconds. When the desktop finally appears, the icons are all blank. After another 15 seconds they start filling in..2 or 3 at a time, until all 40 (est) icons are complete. Edge and Firefox browsers are still fast on open and page loads, as always.

    I think Windows-10 is becoming too "heavy" for my 9 year old computer, even though it has 8gig of RAM and a 1 Terrabyte hard drive that is only 30% filled.

    Will visit this thread periodically to see if any helpful suggestions are posted.

    @fs1 - may be something as simple as a sick icon cache. This only takes a minute or 2 to do, and may speed up those icons. Rebuild Icon Cache in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    I compared performance of v1709 & v1803 in vmware, same configuration but big difference in boot-up speed, processor utilization, firefox startup etc. v1803 is much much slower in virtual environment. I will probably never upgrade my physical home systems to this build.
