    Any Method for fixing slow login due to App Readiness?


    A couple of days ago my local account on my HP laptop(20H2 Windows Version) started taking 5 to 10 mins to log in and in the mean time it would show a black screen with a cursor. I then found out this is due to the App Readiness service on boot up and disabling this would cause everything to go back to normal.
    However I would rather it stay on as it was working fine before and I was just wondering was there any fix for this? I have downloaded all the login fixes that HP have uploaded but none of these ended up working and I have made sure that my App Readiness service is set to manual only. This is quite a frustrating issue as the other local accounts on this machine work just fine and it seems that only my account is affected. Is there any known solution apart from the fixes provided by HP and turning off App Readiness?

    If you search the internet using "App Readiness service" the results point to Windows updates as the cause. If you know when the problem started are you able to check if any updates were installed just before? If so you can uninstall the update to see if it fixes it. I know Windows will reinstall the update but you should be able to see if it fixes the issue before that happens. At least it will verify the cause and maybe the next Windows update, due in a few days, may fix it anyway.

    Thanks for reply and suggestion but I had checked my update log and I did not have anything installed the week before. Is there any other solution or am I now destined to a life of killing app readiness in task manager on boot up?

    OK.
    1. In the bottom left search box type services.msc and then press Enter key. This brings up the "Services" window.
    2. You should see the app readiness service. On my PC the Startup type is set to 'Manual'.
    3. You can change its status by double-clicking on it which launches a new window where you can Start it, Stop it and change its Startup type.

    Give that a go.

    I just tried that and it still hasn't worked. I've tried every solution and even going as far as making a bat file to stop and start app readiness to no avail. I really don't understand how it was working one day with no problems and then the next it only affects my account out of all the local accounts on the laptop.

    You say "it only affects my account out of all the local accounts" so is your account an "Administrator" type and the other accounts "Standard User"? I know this does not fix the ssue but it might point to your user profile account being corrupted.

    Maybe backup your stuff and create a new "Administrator" type account for yourself before your current account fails to load altogether.
