    No. I'm talking about taking a boot trace with Windows Performance Toolkit Recorder as you did it before. - Share Text Images the Easy Way
    When you are asked to chose a path to record the trace file, select your usb storage.

    I don't remember how to start the Performance Recorder It's age related decrepitude I'm aftraid.


    Ok. I found WPRUI.exe in the Windows Kits folder, and that started it. But I don't remember doing that the first time. I wonder what I'm missing?

    How would you like me to send the file to you?

    Still a lot of events dropped in the second boot trace !

    First of all, what is your impression about de boot time and the behavior of your system after uninstalling malwarebytes and the other security softwares ?

    according to the boot trace, there is delays at the first stage of the boot process.Have you added recently any PCI device to your machine ?
    Go to the device manager and check if there is any unknown device.

    there is also delays when starting usb devices (Mouse keyboard ...). Are you using a usb hub ? try to plug on other usb ports.

    Thank you once again. I much appreciate your time.

    Unfortunately, the PC got worse. I wanted to do a recovery install, but it refused to boot up. It's now at an IT centre and they are going to fix it. I will be able to collect it in a few day's time.

    For the moment I'm using one of my reserve PCs with Windows 7.

    Once I have the Windows 10 machine back I will ask you for some advice.

    slow processing

    When was the last time your laptop had a virus scan or disk defragment? How about the deletion of un-needed programs that may be running the background?

    My recommendation would be to do the following:

    1: Uninstall undesired or unused programs (control panel>Install/uninstall programs). My general rule is that if I don't recognize the program name, I delete it. Do a restart when you are done here.

    2: Defragment your hard drive. (Start menu>all programs> accessories>System Tools>Disk Defragmentor>Defragment Disk). This operation can take a while so maybe make it an overnight process.

    3: Try to download and install a well known virus scan program (like McAfee) and run it to make sure there aren't any obvious viruses on your computer. I would recommend uninstalling the program when you are done too, because they tend to take a fair amount of resources themselves.

    If these don't work, you may try a full re-install of your OS or maybe even cleaning your laptop's internals. My old laptop ran super slow because it was over heating and it ran better after a quick clean.

    There are many other potential suggestions but hopefully this is a good start!
