    I've just discovered that I no longer have the slow login problem on occasions if I turn off Automatic App Updates in my main user account. When I update apps manually in Store, the next restart takes a while to login - so the slow login is correlated when app updates occur.

    I don't know if this is 'feature' of W10 or a problem with my PC. Anyway, I'm happy to update apps manually since I rarely use them anyway.
    That fix didn't work since I've a a few start up delays during the past week.

    If you have Kaspersky, pause it the next time you restart. Having it on always causes my login after restart to take several minutes unless I unplug the Internet. I presume that it is doing something during login that slows things.

    I just updated my desktop PC to Windows 10 Pro and that too now has occasional slow logins with no obvious errors reported. Bothe Pcs do have Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2016.

    Steve, Did you try pausing Kaspersky to see if that had an effect on reboot logins? I couple of days ago I tried removing Kaspersky and my login was 5-6 seconds. After I reinstalled it the time went up to minutes. I am thinking of switching to AVG or something else to see if that helps. Web

    This only happens once or twice a week. Booting to the login screen is fast but there is sometimes a 30s delay before the desktop then appears instead of about 5s.

    Right. The screensave image appears fast, but when you enter your login/password it waits a long time before you see the main screen and icons.

    I have found that without Kaspersky enabled it can take up to 10-20 seconds to login. With kaspersky enabled it can take minutes. I assume that whatever windows is doing to login, kaspersky is triple checking and making it take much longer.

    I have also noticed that if I unplug the ethernet before I login it only takes a few tens of seconds with kaspersky, so I assume that there is some internet traffic going in during login that is the root cause of the problem, but I don't know of a way to get a log of what that traffic is or why.
