    Run some of the Troubleshooters to see if a hardware problem is creeping in. BIOS likes to make sure you have workable stuff and does some inventorying. Least run the Hardware one, any others you like.

    Attachment 200312

    Maybe a chkdsk /r, also.
    Troubleshooters show no errors. Chkdsk shows two bad links. I have to restart for chkdsk /r to run. Will report after that.

    My laptop recently went into slow boot mode which was fixed by reinstalling Malwarebytes.

    You can try doing a boot trace to work out what's wrong e.g. Slow Login After 1803 Upgrade

    Hi
    As Steve Said. Take a boot trace so that we can see what causes the delay:

    1. Open a command line as an Administrator (Run As Administrator)
    2. Type the following command in the command line Windows: cd %programfiles(x86)%\Windows Kits\10\Windows Performance Toolkit
    3. Type the following command to start recording the boot trace: wpr -start GeneralProfile -start CPU -onoffscenario Boot -onoffresultspath c:\wpr -numiterations 1 -filemode
    4. Compress the .ETL file generated under the C:\WPR path (very important)
    5. Upload the boot trace file on Dropbox or on https://www.transfernow.net/en/

    System is Meltdown protected: YES
    System is Spectre protected: NO!
    Microcode Update Available: YES
    Performance: SLOWER
    CPUID: 306A9

    Now what do I do?

    I don't see any Windows Kits on my machine. Windows 10 Pro.

    Update: Ok, I am downloading it. It is a monster file, pretty slow at the speed I have.

    Press the Windows and "R" keys simultaneously, type "taskmgr" into the "Run" box and click "OK". When task manager starts, click on the "Startup" tab and see if there is anything that can be disabled.

    I try to keep on top of startups regularly. Just now, I don't see anything new that could account for a 30 second boot to PW going to 2.5 minutes.

    Separate from my problem here, I do find it annoying how many programs or services run at startup and cannot be disabled without undesired consequences. I have several programs that insist on a license check on bootup, even if I don't run the program. "Bonjour" service is one. "Abbyy Finereader" (an excellent program for OCR) is another. If I disable the licensing service at startup, I cannot run the program.

    I have also noticed in my Event Viewer that MS recently re-enabled background downloading and that takes up a lot of time without any notice.

    Windows Performance Recorder: It records all events happening during the shutdown process;
    Here is what you have to do to record a trace;


    • Download and Install windows Performance Toolkit Download and install the Windows ADK | Microsoft Docs . Choose the package corresponding to your Windows version.
    • Record a trace using Windows Performance Recorder using these options: https://justpaste.it/1e75d
    • When you are prompted to choose where to save the trace file, it's better to save it on an external storage (USB stick or Disk).
    • Compress the resulting file (Important)
    • Upload it to a suitable site and post a share link to it.



    MS recently re-enabled background downloading
    You can disable this in Settings, assuming this is what you mean:

    Provided they impose no significant overhead, not to worry.

    When your PC is idle, is CPU, disk, network use minimal or zero?

    5. Upload the boot trace file on Dropbox or on https://www.transfernow.net/en/
    .
    Took a bit to get this going. Had to download the Windows Kits first. Then I had to figure out where I needed quotes in the command line. It seems (not sure but it's not important) that I could not run this at all in Windows Powershell (Admin) from WindowsKey+X but I could with Start, Run, Cmd - ctl+shft+Enter followed by ACL prompt to enter admin pw.

    Once I got that sorted out, I entered the WPR line. Bam! System rebooted. No time to close programs or chose a destination for the .ETL file other than the c:\wpr that is in the command line.

    After rebooting, there was nothing at all in the c:\wpr folder. I have repeated this several times, but now nothing at all happens when I run WPR. I have left the command window open for a half hour after entering the wpr line and hitting enter.

    I guess I could try this again but booting first with an admin account. I'll do that.
