I have a 3.3 ghz processor, 8 gig ram and 4 terrabytes of native hard drive space. My system was working fine and fast with windows 7.
Just upgraded to windows 10 and after logging in with the system password my screen goes black, the mouse disappears and the computer seems to just be sitting there.
Went through that cycle a couple of times waiting for over an hour to see if the system would finally get me to the desk top.
On one of these cycles finally called support and waited 40 minutes to speak to someone. Once someone came on the line, I went to the computer and it had "magically" gotten to the desktop. Hmmmm.
The technician I spoke to said windows 10 takes awhile to index everything. Didn't elaborate.
This morning I went to log in after leaving the computer on overnight. Unfortunately the computer had gone into sleep mode and once I logged on guess what? Yup, the same black screen.
My question is does windows 10 have to index ALL of my files every time it starts up before it allows me to get to my desktop so I can start working?
If so are there ways I can tweak the system so I can to work on my computer without having to turn the computer on an hour before I plan to start work?
The windows system may boot faster but if getting to the desk top is this slow, give me back windows 7.
Also a side note. If this is some strategy to get me to get rid of my native hard drive space and RENT some space on a cloud somewhere, there is going to be some smoke in the city.
