    Restarting system taking extremely long time


    Hello forum.

    I purchased an all in one Desktop which is running windows 10 home. Because this was a display model, the salesperson told me I'd have to restart the system in order to delete all the stuff which had been installed while on display, various apps and software. So I started the restarting system pressing shift and the windows key to enter boot mode. But the restarting process is still stuck on 12% after 4 hours... Is this normal? I had read online it's usually around 2-4 hours for whole system to restart.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Windows 10 Home: Extremely Long Boot Times & Sometimes Not At All


    Thanks for the suggestion but this didn't work. And for completing step 3 and 4 I had to reverse them and perform step 4 1st and then step 3 next. I don't know if going out of order makes a difference but the two times I'd try to do step 3, it came back with a message saying my only options were On or Off.

    And just for clarification on Step 2 what kind of file did you place in the c root to take up the hiberfile space? A video file? That's what I did, specifically Back to the Future, with a little bit of wishful thinking that it would take my system back in time to a point when it was working.

  3. extremely long startup time

    Started out with scanning and repairing drive C at power on. Then progressed to (47%) and froze. Taking up to 10 minutes to finally come on, and after doing disk cleanup and defrag, the computer working normal and fast. Restart is still very slow and after
    doing a restore the scanning and repairing went away, but the login screen takes about 5 to 7 minutes to get through. Scanned with AVG and Defender with no results. Tried several remedies from internet search, but none seemed to help. Can you give me a step
    by step instructions on how to remedy this issue. HP15 laptop, Widows 10. Thank you,,,,,,,BTW, I shut off the login but it still takes a long time to cycle through to desktop.
