    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/
    Odd. As I wrote, first time the machine rebooted but not ETL file. The next time nothing happened until I manually restarted. Then I got an etl file.

    I am uploading a zipped copy of etl to transfernow. I hope there is no confusion introduced because I started the boot trace as an admin but from my user login. I rebooted with that admin logon directly and the trace file was created.

    Also, the trace file seems to run for a long time after entering my Windows password. I just want to be clear that I have not experienced any slowdown after entering the Windows PW. It is entirely (as far as is obvious) before getting to the PW entry screen.

    Here is the link:

    Not yet, dalchina. I think I have to set this aside while I deal with potential evacuation to my cabin for wildfire victims, and also for the possibility that I may have to evacuate if the fire goes even farther.

    Our AQI (Air Quality Index) just went past 740, where 400+ is "Hazardous to everyone," the worst rating.

    North central Washington state, a beautiful place called the Methow Valley.

    Crescent Mountain Fire: Friday update and forecasts | Methow Valley News

    We had a few in the UK too, but moorland more than woodland I think. Points up the need to have your backups physically removed or secure from the effects of fire or flood. (A narrow view, but hey, this is tenforums!!)

    Yup, that is one of them. The other threatening friends' homes is McLeod Fire. The biggest ever was four years ago. It was a very unusual (for us) grasslands fire called the Carlton Complex.

    I have always been backup obsessive. When I lived in north Seattle and had a downtown office, that office was where I kept my offsite backups. I started with Fastback on floppies, then tapes, then DVDs, then USB drives.

    No more office, so I keep offsite backups in a safe deposit box. If the bank building and my house burn, and I have not evacuated with my laptop, it is probably the end of the world -- for me, at least.

    Oh, yes, I have some critical files - roboform passwords, Quicken books back 10 years, and all my contacts - on an Ironkey.
