I suggest you to keep your Windows updated, Install only necessary software programs and use a
good antivirus and keep it updated.
I would suggest you to run the System Maintenance troubleshooter and check if it helps.
Type troubleshooter in the search box and then press enter.
Select Troubleshooting. Click on
view all and select System Maintenance.
Click next and follow the on-screen instructions.
Also remove Unwanted Programs from Windows Startup: There are many unnecessary software programs which automatically start with Windows and keep running in background. You can disable those programs from system startup to
Right-click on Taskbar and select "Task Manager" option. Alternatively, you can direct open Task Manager by pressing "Ctrl+Shift+Esc" keys together.
Now go to "Startup" tab and select the unwanted program in the given list and click on "Disable" button to remove it from startup.
Restart your computer and the disabled program will no longer start with Windows and you'll get a faster running system.
I am having a very slow boot up since the anniversary update.Sometimes it freezes with the windows logo on the screen and I have to use the power down button to shut it down and start over.My laptop works fine since the update but not so with my desktop.
Same problem here. I tried the usual steps, disabled start up programs, maintenance sweep, etc. but to no avail. I decided to rebuilt from scratch, radical but I've plenty of back ups if need be. As a virgin build my system was back to its former speed.
I then installed the Anniversary update and Ian now back to the stage one, boot taking over a minute from just a few seconds.
FYI, my hardware is a update date new spec machine, 6700k with an NVMe SSD.
Same here, noticeably slower bootup time with the anniversary update. I checked the startup, and nothing new was enabled. Does Microsoft not know that they degraded bootup time? That was one really cool feature of Windows 10 before. Very fast bootup.
Same thing here. I used the Windows Performance Recorder to track the issue.
The result is that just at the beginning of the boot, it starts the windows file system filter (WOF) and it stays idle for 30 seconds. It seems it stays in "spaceport.sys", which is the storage spaces driver. I have a SSD, 2 hard disks, and a DVD writer.
