I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. So far, I am regretting it. My start up is woefully slow, (15 to 20 minutes). 

Every morning after sleep mode I get this "Critical process error" and the entire start up process repeats itself.

I have not found anything on line that refers to this problem in Windows 10.

Can any one help ?
