Windows 10: System very slow to startup

    System very slow to startup


    windows 10 professional

    This is **NOT** a boot issue, the system boots up just fine and gets to the login screen fast.
    The issue is the system startup after login, it is takes a rather long time for Windows to become usable. I have tried stopping all NON windows services in msconfig, but this made barely any difference. Even after the system seems to have finished the startup, once I open the browser it then takes ages until it loads the first web page.
    If I run task manager there is nothing that is hogging the cpu or memory or disk.

    I have defragged the disk, although I had to use a 3rd party tool to do this as Windows defrag refuses to do it because it thinks it is an SSD disk due to the 32GB SSD cache.

    Hi CaptObvious

    So just to confirm, you've re-tested things after you disabled every (third party) program that loads when Windows loads? Did you happen to try booting in SafeMode?

    yes of course I rebooted the system and tested after disabling everything, otherwise it would be pointless.
    The problem does not occur in safe mode, but I cannot really work in safe mode.

    I realize that you would have tested things, but that was my 'subtle' way of asking if you're sure that you disabled everything that's loading when Windows does. Hence the "third party" in parentheses.

    The problem does not occur in safe mode, but I cannot really work in safe mode.
    I was not suggesting that you work in Safemode. The purpose was to see if the problem still exists while in Safemode, which is sounds as if it does not. This seems to indicate that you have something loading with Windows, that's causing the problem. Now whether it's something that's third party, I really don't know.

    Just to confirm, that when you've tried "stopping all NON windows services in msconfig," that if you opened the Task Manger and look that the start ups, that would be completely empty?

    I just checked again, and yes it is now doing it in safe mode as well.
    Yes I did disable all the non windows services as well.

    It could be driver's issue, check for missing drivers, if it finds some, download them from their homepage.

    Driver Easy Free 3,000,000+ Users Trusted Driver Updater

    Try to exclude tasks by temporarily disabling Task Scheduler.
    Start - Run - regedit - find the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Schedule

    Change Start value from 2 to 4, restart. To revert back, change it back to 2.

    Are you sure this DriverEasy is safe to use, I have tried a few of these driver update tools in the past and they to cause more problems than they solve, or report drivers being out of date when they are not.
    I have gone through many drivers manually and checked for updates, and there have not been any,

    I also have a very annoying problem with my USB mouse/keyboard, after booting or coming out of hibernate, it takes several minutes until they start working, this seems like it may be related to the overall slowness problem.
