    What I can see from the sreen capture, that there is a big delay of 109s (almost 2 min) in the Session Init phase.
    In this phase the drivers are loaded. check if all your drivers are up to date, especially the graphic card driver.

    If I've the boot trace I could identify the culprit driver. 6 Gb may seems huge but after compression it can be reduced to 1 gb.

    Hi Zinou,

    All drivers are up to date, by my driver updater tool.
    I compressed it to 600mb. But how can I share it with you?

    Has anyone thought of malware or spyware on the system? I've seen that slow a system down to a crawl no matter the type of HDD is installed.

    There was many events that was dropped during the boot trace, but there is enough data to undertake a troubleshooting.

    First, the majority of the delay happens in the Session init phase. in this phase the OS primarily load and initialize drivers.

    I have identified two suspect drivers:
    • NoMachine Hub that causes a boot delay of 12s. Windows try to reload the catalog to check the code integrity for this driver because it's a non-embedded-signed driver. So try to upgrad to the latest version of NoMachine application.

    • But the biggest delay is caused by Intel Management Engine driver ( 90 s)

    you have the version There is a newer version available on the Intel website Download Intel® Management Engine Consumer Driver for Intel® NUC Kit NUC7i3DN

    Update this driver and see if that help.

    Finally take another boot trace.
