    Windows 10 is taking longer than ever to fully initialize

    Windows 10 is taking longer than ever to fully initialize. I am referring to the time period from when the PIN login happens to the time when the desktop and taskbar are functioning. There is a period when the monitors are blank and there are no desktop icons and putting the cursor near the edge of the screen does not unhide the taskbar. This period seems to be more than 60 seconds. Formerly this was only a few seconds.

    This change is not the result of new application installations. This machine does run a MySQL server but that is not a new installation. The only installations that are apparent are whatever is updated in the periodic updates to Windows. This problem started a few days ago. I update Windows approximately every few weeks or sometimes more often. I do not do it regularly because sometimes I pause updates.

    What is the fix for this problem, please?

    Have you tried to update your drivers ? especially the graphic card driver.

    otherwise, record a boot trace and share it here.

    Do a check disk
    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    chkdsk c: /f
    It will say your disk is in use and if you want to schedule to next start = yes
    Pay attention on the results, specially bad blocks, bad clusters, bad sectors etc
