  1. Windows taking too long at startup


    I have been facing a problem with windows recenty, it takes way too long to boot then it used to, this started a few days ago now it takes amost 10 minutes. Even after it starts all the desktop icons and taskbar icons take another 5 minutes to show up.

    :)

    Startup takes too long at Winlogon Init

    Hi,

    Your boot trace shows that your logon phase took 31s, and 26s was spent loading your user profile.

    There is a lot of CPU and disk activities there, generated by the svchost (1580) process.

    A quick look at its call stack shows that it's spending most of its time loading the user profile, reading the C:\Users\heinl\Appdata\local\Temp\ path content.

    I suggest you delete all the C:\Users\heinl\Appdata\local\Temp\ content, restart your computer and see if it helps.otherwise, you can create a new user profile as suggested by @dalchina

    It take too long to boot in my windows 10

    Hi,

    The reason that the system takes too long for it to boot might be due to the Startup items running in Windows10. We will assist you to resolve the issue.

    Please answer to a few questions to narrow down the issue.

    • Which update are you referring to?
    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    • Did you install any third party security application?
    I suggest you to follow the below steps on how to disable the Startup items and check if that helps to resolve the issue.

    • Open Task Manager by pressing Alt+Ctrl+Del.
    • Click the Startup tab and look through the list of programs that are enabled to run during startup. Then to stop them from running, right-click the program and select
      Disable.
    You may also try enabling the Fast Startup.


    • Press Windows
      + X key and click Control Panel.

    • Click on Power options.

    • Click on "Choose what the power buttons do".

    • Click on "Change settings that are currently unavailable". If it prompts to click on yes, then click
      Yes.

    • Uncheck "Turn on fast startup (Recommended)" under shutdown settings.

    • Click Save changes
      to configure the settings.

    Do let us know whether the computer boots faster after following the above steps.
    If the issue still persists, please reply with the required information. We will be glad to assist.

    Thank you.
