    doing a dism restorehealth every month


    I am using Windows 10 home edition.1909 OS build 18363.900 each month or after 3 months or so I am forced to do
    Code:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup 
     dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    my laptop occasionally becomes very slow for some unknown reason.
    Like I face challenges when Microsoft Office starts loading it takes lot of times to open files.
    Working with VMware virtual machines worth 500 Gb could be slow which is understandable.
    But system boots very slow that is not understandable.
    Usually when I run these commands vmware breaks and I have to re install vmware.Apart from that there has not been any other problem.
    When I run these two dism commands things come back to normal and system is able to restore its health.
    I want to know why is this happening. What is causing my laptop to be slow and why I need to regularly keep executing those 2 dism commands.

    When it is slow, how much free space do you have on C: ?

    What does your task manager show then? - excessive resource usage? Which? Which process is using the resource?

    Have you changed page file settings from default?

    But system boots very slowly
    Does this always happen? How long does it take to boot to the lock screen?

    What type of disk do you have?

    This appears to be a recent laptop.

    I want to know why is this happening. What is causing my laptop to be slow and why I need to regularly keep executing those 2 dism commands.

    The first of those two commands is just routine housekeeping, cleaning up outdated windows updates. I routinely do so after each month's new cumulative update. The same process can be performed with Disk Clean-up's 'clean up system files' or Settings > System > Storage, show more categories and click on 'System & reserved'.

    If you leave it for three months before cleaning up then there would have been at least three cumulative updates and quite a lot to clean up.

    That doesn't necessarily explain why your system slows down though. Maybe you are running out of free space on your C: drive? Perhaps you should start using Disk Clean-up regularly, or turn on Storage sense.

    Open and Use Disk Cleanup in Windows 10
    Turn On or Off Storage Sense Automatically Free Up Space in Windows 10

    One command you didn't mention could well help, its SFC /SCANNOW

    yes I have to use
    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    also. The laptop is Hp 15 bs0xx.
    I have 10 Gb free space these days. Only recently I deleted Matlab setup which freed 19 Gb.But that was not installed on this laptop. I mostly used matlab in Windows inside Vmware. Taskmanager I have stopped checking.
    HP Laptop 15-bs0xx, hard disk is 5400 RPM that is one reason for every thing to be slow.https://www.tenforums.com/newreply.p...eply&p=1856454
    But despite that for normal working also some times I need to execute dism and sfc commands.
    But other than that I don't know what happens. I am not able to understand booting time
    I used a timer in my mobile here are some statistics.
    It took 2:16 mm:ss to shutdown.
    Then I powered on
    Intial 40 seconds POST test (an HP icon and some round round circles)
    Now a blue screen of windows 10 powering on comes which says please wait.
    after 1 minute 15 second I see Username and welcome message,
    then after 4 minutes 54 seconds I see desktop but still the application icons on desktop are not there.
    Now after 5 minutes 30 seconds all icons on desktop are there but still I can not use the start menu.
    Now I wait and at 6 minutes 30 seconds I can use with Window key to open the start menu.
    Then from 6 minutes 50 seconds after booting I can use the laptop.

    I also tried after this boot opening a Microsoft word document, I double clicked on document for initial 3 minutes nothing happened.Now I again double clicked the same document after 2 minutes the document opened.
    And now I double clicked Microsoft edge after 50 seconds I can use it.

    So this is the time it takes to boot and become system usable approximately 8 minutes.

    Here is a screenshot of task manager immediately after booting.

    Hi, just considering your boot time:
    then after 4 minutes 54 seconds I see desktop but still the application icons on desktop are not there.
    Now after 5 minutes 30 seconds all icons on desktop are there but still I can not use the start menu.
    Now I wait and at 6 minutes 30 seconds I can use with Window key to open the start menu.
    - please try a clean boot (tutorial or Google if unsure how) and advise the comparative times.

    The time to the lock/login screen is unexceptional. I would guess the rather slow time to the machine becoming available is due to startups, and using a HDD.

    (Even if you use a SSD it can take some time for startups to load).

    Like I face challenges when Microsoft Office starts loading it takes lot of times to open files.
    When this is happening, pleaes capture a screenshot of your task manager- choose appropriate views to illustrate what you observe. Post screenshots thus (wait a moment before clicking the upload button):

    Please post the result of this:

    Also run a disk check:
    HD Tune v2.55 (free) e.g. from softpedia.com - Health and Error scan tabs.
    If ok, also run
    chkdsk c: /scan
    from an admin command or Powershell prompt.

    There was no difference of boot time after a clean boot also. No noticeable difference.

    Your CPU usage is showing 65%!

    Can you sort the CPU column so that it goes from highest to lowest and then post another screenshot please?

    Hello @sandila,

    As a test please perform the following . . .

    [1] Goto Search.
    [2] Type cmd.
    [3] Right-click Command Prompt in the list.
    [4] Select Run as Administrator.
    [5] Type start msconfig and press <ENTER>.
    [6] Click the Startup tab.
    [7] Uncheck the IOBit init Application box.
    [8] Restart.

    See if that makes a difference!

    You can easily reverse the above operation by Checking the IOBit init Application box to re-enable it.

    I hope this helps!

    Please make sure you post a screenshot of your task manager a few minutes after logging in (when startups have been loaded).

    It's inevitable there will be activity after logging in- that's not of interest.

    The WEI scores look reasonable.

    There was no difference of boot time after a clean boot also. No noticeable difference.
    Please clarify- what is of interest here is how long after logging in activity settles to near zero- or put another way how quickly the PC becomes responsive after logging in, rather than differences in time booting to lock screen.
