    Did you run Superantispyware?

    If you're going to add a SSD and keep the HDD, you don't need a 240G SSD. In my computer I have a 120G SSD with windows and Linux and there is still a lot of space. As SSD prices are falling, don't spent money on something you won't use and that tomorrow will cost just a fraction.
    - I have installed many crucial-bx500. So far so good.
    - To replace the ODD with a caddy (to hold the actual HDD) you have to find out if your laptop have a 9.5mm ODD or a 12.7 mm ODD. Then buy a 9.5mm caddy or a 12.7 mm caddy.

    Download and run AdWCleaner too. It's a portable app. so you don't need to install it.

    While I believe an SSD will transform most PCs, the excessive disk usage shown in your post won't likely be solved by replacing the HDD especially after proving the disk is OK with Crystal Disk Mark. High disk usage will cripple any PC and should be corrected before attempting any upgrades, in this situation.

    The fact that the disk usage settles down after 6 minutes, clearly illustrates that the activity or problem is related to a program starting with Windows. You may believe that you can't operate without any of the programs currently listed in startup but perhaps understanding which program is causing your problem will better assist you in moving forward.

    Performing a clean boot as I suggested earlier will prove that your system functions as-is and progressively adding additional programs to the startup tab will narrow down which program is contributing to excessive disk usage.

    Before performing a clean boot, I notice in your screenshot of the task manager that OneDrive is enabled in the startup tab, why is this required? I've seen instances where OneDrive will consume excessive resources during startup of Windows.
    Also, McAfee is notorious for causing resource problems. If you have a subscription, I'd just uninstall it as a test.


    In summary, I would suggest you first focus on reducing the excessive disk usage which will likely resolve the extended start time for the PC. If anything is not clear and can't be resolved with Google Translate, please feel free to ask for clarification.

    PS; for an extra $12, I would buy the 240GB SSD. I did same for an old laptop upgrade I did before. I like a bit of additional space on an OS drive so as I have more flexibility to add programs, games etc in the future.

    Thank you!

    This is quick scan, there is nothing dangerous

    I prefer to buy a 240GB SDD because it costs only 50% more and then I would like to have applications installed that start up fast, I need more space. 120GB = € 23 (crucial bx500), 240GB = € 34 (kingstom A400)

    It hasn't found anything, however I use Mcafee Total Protection

    Now I would like to remove it since at startup it starts and adds me to the other programs at startup and increases the boot time.

    how should i do? the removal button is gray and deactivated

    A great idea and was already suggested in posts 19 & 23. I'll try suggesting it again with the assistance of Google Translate.

    Ciao einstein1969, Il miglior consiglio è seguire le indicazioni di Megahert. Un SSD trasformerà magicamente la maggior parte dei PC in un dispositivo demone della velocità rispetto a qualsiasi HDD. Un metodo per provare rapidamente che troppi programmi stanno iniziando con Windows e sta causando un'eccessiva attività del disco è provare un avvio pulito (o potrebbero essere solo 1 o più programmi).


    Perform a Clean Boot in Windows 10 to Troubleshoot Software Conflicts


    Innanzitutto, seleziona la scheda Start sul tuo task manager, ordina per stato facendo clic sulla parte superiore della colonna dello stato, espandi la finestra per visualizzare chiaramente tutti i contenuti e cattura uno screenshot con Snip & Sketch, paint (salva come jpg) o altro programma preferito. In questo modo avrai la registrazione dello stato attuale.Dopo un avvio pulito, è probabile che l'attività del disco scenda a un singolo valore%. Successivamente, avvia nuovamente l'abilitazione di tutti i programmi necessari nella scheda Start, idealmente uno alla volta. Se hai già identificato la necessità che molti programmi inizino con Windows, potresti abilitarne metà alla volta mentre monitora l'attività del disco.Se l'attività del disco salta di nuovo, disabilitare metà dell'ultimo gruppo abilitato e continuare a ridurre della metà fino a quando l'attività del disco torna alla normalità.Se hai bisogno di una guida su quali elementi mantenere abilitati nella scheda di avvio, pubblica uno screenshot (ordinato per stato) e otterrai assistenza.

    Devi eliminare i 709 cookie di tracciamento identificati nel tuo post n. 24. Questo probabilmente non correggerà il problema di utilizzo del disco ma potrebbe essere un contributo.


    Saluti,Michael


    Spero che il mio uso di Google Translate mi aiuti a rendere più chiari questi consigli. Per favore mi faccia sapere. Saluti

    I think you may be right, the SSD is faster but I also believe that there is a possibility that the boot time will be reduced slightly. Especially in seeks the SSD disk is faster and perhaps we should analyze this. But we'll see it later if needed. You think there is only one program that slows down, I have doubts that they are a bit all that slow down the PC. I am interested in having the pc immediately operational and I cannot remove any of the programs that are there now. I need Onedrive for data backup, Mcfee protects me. I had a performance problem with Mcafee previously but the support team fixed the problem quickly. I followed the instructions in part ONE of the link you gave. The boot time is: about 5min. What should I do now?

    For the 240GB SSD I had already made your considerations. Thank you

    Thanks for the reply.

    When performing a clean boot as per Brink's tutorial, the whole point of the test is to disable all non-microsoft apps including any anti-virus programs such as McAfee. I understand you may feel the need to keep this program active but not disabling any non-microsoft application defeats the entire purpose of this diagnostic test.

    Some application or applications are crippling your PC with excessive disk usage, the first items to disable for testing is almost always any third-party apps. McAfee is also a highly suspect application for resource usage. I personally have used it many times over the past 30 years and won't ever install it again because I believe it to be problematic, more often than not.

    You may be using OneDrive, however; it most likely does not require to be started with Windows, especially if you're not using to sync to the cloud.

    I would suggest you follow the tutorial, disable all non-microsoft applications including McAfee and then examine the disk usage and restart time for Windows. After disabling all non-microsoft apps and before before the restart, confirm that Windows Defender is enabled.

    Windows Defender will protect your system while you run this test and afterwards you can enable McAfee again. Many users do not use a third-party anti-virus and manage to stay safe and secure.

    einstein1969, on MSConfig, did you disabled startup programs (Avvio)? How many startup programs you have?

    On a clean boot, how long did it take to boot?
