Windows 10: Boot up takes 2 hours! Solved

    Everyone commenting was rather quick to assume this person was full of BS & scamming/spamming. Being that I was desperate & had spent the better part of two days trying to fix a very similar problem where after messing with my file/folder ownership & permissions, I also had a 2-3 hour startup problem, I decided to try this solution. I went to the website, downloaded the software & ran it. After about 3 hours, it was finished with all of its scanning & fixing & I did a reboot. And I was delighted & surprised to see my computer boot normally! I had to share & thank the OP person for putting up this fix. Created an account just to say as much. It saved me many more hours of frustration.

    PS - The humorous thing about this post & the comments is the program is free (both in cost & virus free) so not sure what all the paranoia was about.

    I tried it and it works, period.


    I read this spam comment, and I did some further research. Including the [this] (see quote) link in this chain.
    I actually made the permissions mistake myself. i wanted to change permissions on a data drive and did it on C:\
    This caused windows 10 to take up to 2 hours to boot. I thought, ok, nothing to lose (all my data is on a Network drive) I'll give this Windows Repair a go.

    I used the stand alone install which you can run from a USB. It works, but do follow the instructions, especially to boot into safe mode and run the repairs multiple times.

    I first ran a full repair, dutifully following all steps including disk checks, backup etc. Then I repeated the permissions repair (as I knew exactly the stupid move I made...)

    This fixed the issue. It took about 4 hours on my box (an older HP home system)

    Sadly, I was sort of 'jazzed' about that tweaking program , but shady tactics makes me think twice.

    Nice call!


    Well, if this was in fact spam, I hate to further promote it, but I was curious.

    The program he linked to does seem to have the ability to help in these type of circumstances. I wanted to add this, in case this might be of some help to anybody. I understand there's a portable version too.

    I'm not sure about re-posting possible spam, so I'll leave the link to the program out. However, THIS was my reference. I, personally, have never heard of it before.
