    login delay version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.804)


    Windows told me to download new updates. Since installing these updates, when I try to log on it takes 6 minutes from when I enter my login password to when windows starts. How do I fix this?

    I was wondering whether you would like to run the following script and post the output.

    getWindowsUpdateList.bat

    Are you able to restore back to the state before the update? If Windows then asks you again to re-install the update then elect to postpone the update for as long as you can.

    I can't restore because I haven't got a restore point. How can I uninstall all these new updates which were installed today?

    If "un"installation is possible ....

    Settings > Updates and Security > View Update History > Uninstall updates

    Also. try removing the login process (search engine will be your friend). Is there still a delay in the startup process (i.e. updates and/or login may just be co-incidental, other factors may be at play)?

    Also create a new (dummy) account ... log into that a couple of times. Still delay?

    I uninstalled the first update only, and it has fixed the problem. Thank you

    Do a Windows clean up of your drive.


    Open Windows Explorer > Right click C: drive > Properties > Disk cleanup > tick everything > OK


    Open Windows Explorer > Right click C: drive > Properties > this time, choose Clean-up system files > tick evrything > OK (this may be a cup of coffee time, can take some time if not done previously)


    Now, if you want to tempt fate .....


    Now that you know this update can be uninstalled, try re-installing it just to see if it was an update that just went pear-shaped on this (that) occasion.

    Also consider using Backup software. A popular one is Macrium Reflect Free.

    One tiny problem remains: I've got the "This PC" icon at the bottom of the screen where I want it. Every time I restart the computer the icon has moved to the left of the screen. How do I fix that?
