App Readiness

Recently , my computer showed a black screen after I log in. After reading articles online about this problem, I've come to find out that disabling ''App Readiness'' in Services can solve the problem immediately and permanently. But now the question for me is, will disabling ''App Readiness'' cause any other issues or prevent any functions from functioning ?

The App Readiness service runs as a LocalSystem in a process of svchost.exe. The specified executable file is essential to the functionality of the operating system as it is shared with other services that are running on your device. To better understand your concern about getting a black screen after log in, we'd like to know the following:

  • The last activities performed on your device prior to your concern.
  • The version and build of Windows 10 that you're using on your device. To check this, you can perform the steps posted on this link.

In the meantime, we'd recommend performing a clean boot in Windows to isolate software conflicts on your device. To do this, you can perform the steps posted on this link. In the clean boot environment, check if you'll still get the black screen after log in. The link will also provide steps to isolate the possible cause of the issue. Once you're done troubleshooting, check the How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting section to revert your device to normal boot.

We look forward to your response.
