    Windows 10 Startup Lag


    Hello all,

    Im having a bit of an issue with Windows 10 Pro on my Dell (specs listed below in second system.) Well, I guess it isnt an issue so much as its an annoyance, and I havent found any way to fix it yet.

    When I start my machine, from power on, to UEFI, to Windows start screen is fine. I have my system set up so one needs to press ctrl-alt-delete to login. After pressing this, there is a pause of say 10 seconds or so where it shows the circling loading dots, then it shows the screen with your user name and allows you to enter your password. This is the only time I have lag like this, everything else is lightning fast.

    I have both drives in my Dell encrypted with bit locker. This issue started I want to say about a month after I used bitlocker to encrypt everything, so it didnt start right away. I keep my system well optimized, taking care to trim the SSD (C: drive) and defrag the Data drive (D: drive, Seagate Firecuda), clear junk files usually once a week to every other week, remove programs I dont use, so the system as far as I can tell is pretty tidy. Like I said, everywhere else, loading programs, games, browsers, malware scans, etc, its all very fast.

    Any ideas of where I should look or what I could do to remove the lag when logging in?

    I would use Autoruns to check / disable startup programs / services / tasks for each user. See https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../bb963902.aspx. You could turn off Bitlocker to see if that is the cause of your problem - see Turn On or Off BitLocker for Fixed Data Drives in Windows 10

    Like I said, it didnít happen right after turning on Bitlocker. Iíve already used autoruns to turn off all I could on startup, and it didnít seem to make a difference.

    If it is caused by Bitlocker, Iíll deal with it. My laptop goes a bunch of different places with me and has work related stuff on it that I really wouldnít want someone else to get at.

    I have same problem, it was good before I install Office 2013 , but then now start up takes almost 1 or more minutes.
    When I check , there's a service 'Office Software Protection Platform', how can I disable it ?
