    Hello @Harry Flatters,

    I wonder if anything has been added to your Startup. Let us see what you have loading [ Apps/Programs/Services/Utilities/etc ].

     MSConfig

    [1] Press the Win + R keys together to open the Run dialog box.
    [2] Type msconfig in the Run dialog box > Enter.
    [3] Click the Startup tab.
    [4] Expand the Startup Item and Manufacturer columns so that ALL the data is showing.
    [5] Sort the Startup Item column so that ALL the enabled items are at the top [ click Date Disabled column ] .
    [6] Post a screenshot . . .

    I hope this helps.
    Here's the screen shot and I'll try and do the Clean boot ASAP.

    Hello @Harry Flatters,

    Out of interest, have you tried Disabling Dropbox and Google Chrome to see if that makes a difference?

    You can always Re-Enable them afterwards.

    I'll bet your clean boot test will successfully start your PC much faster.

    Looking at the number of items 'enabled' to start with Windows, I'm not surprised it's slow to start.
    Consider that most apps implant themselves into the Start Menu and truly don't belong there. Unless it's directly related to Windows, not much needs to be enabled.

    CCXProcess is Adobe Creative Cloud Suite and is known to cause delayed starts. I've disabled most items in mine, the program will start when I choose.

    Interesting. Did you remove all non-microsoft items?

    Try booting to Safe Mode.

    I am no expert - clearly - but I'm pretty sure that startup items are not causing the delay.

    Essentially, when the machine 1st boots and brings up the Windows logo, the 'whirly gig' used to do about 1 and a half cycles, now it does nearly 13.

    If you look at the log files I submitted under WPA, there is a 49 second delay in the "Session Init" phase, way before login and before any of the startup progs get going.

    Screen shot here....

    Please complete the 'My Computer' info to better assist us in helping you. Do you have a HDD or SSD for your OS?

    Thanks Harry.

    Another quick item to check is Startup delay in System Properties.

    Win key + R, type systempropertiesadvanced + enter. Select Setttings in Startup & Recovery.

    Confirm 'Time to display operating system' is set to less than 5 seconds. Most PCs with an SSD allow a setting of 1 second.

    Strangely enough, I was just starting to post about that!
    That is what mine is set to, and what a difference it makes.
