I've disabled/uninstalled a bunch of stuff I decided I don't need, but Windows 10 still takes at least 8 minutes from cold boot or restart. And, I'm wondering why startup impact for 34/45 of my apps still show up as not measured. I've been runnnig Windows 10 for over a month.

 

How can I isolate which processes are slowing down my startup time without a lengthy trial-and-error session?

Let's see shall we?

 

Have you cleaned your temp folder recently? This can become boggled with stuff overtime which can lead to one of your problems, but if you didn't scan your computer does not matter if it's only ESET viruses can still get onto your system. A few I have recommended are Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes, Junkware Removal Tool and Adwcleaner. With an SSD I would highly suspect it's a malware related problem.

Thanks. I ran all of those and they found stuff. Boot is now ~6 minutes.

 

When I finally reach the desktop it doesn't quite load all the way. Some icons in the notification area don't appear, my temp monitors are frozen, color profile doesn't load. When I launch Chrome however, it seems to kick things into gear.

 

Any further recommendations?

Six minutes boot time for Windows 10 is way too long, especially if on an SSD.

Looking at your screenshot, the first ones to question are those that don't have a manufacturer.  These are:

 

Program

SpyderUtility 1.2.3

BitMeter 2.exe

rainmeter.exe

 

Who are they by and what are they for?  It might seem obvious (for example 'rainmeter' is probably some kind of weather application, especially with its raindrop icon but is it really?  Why is the manufacturer reluctant to reveal itself?  And what is the one called 'program'?

 

Get hold of the free Ccleaner - https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner and run that.  It will clear out a lot of junk files, that may speed things up somewhat.

 

A couple of "do not"s for you though:

1) Don't run the registry cleaner unless you know what you're doing and understand what it will do.

2) Don't defrag your drive - it's an SSD and all this will do is shorten its life without giving anything in return.

 

Have you recently had a malware attack?  I agree with EmishOrc, this is likely to be the result of a malware attack but let's see if a simple system clean improves things in the first instance.  The programs he recommends are all worth running.

 

Is this a new Win 10 install or an upgrade?

If an upgrade, what was performance like before?

I agree with Angoid ^ Defragging an SSD would shorten it a lot. Also I agree with him, because the Registry is for us people who know how to get around it. 

 

I can see it's Windows 10 that revamped menu I highly recognized if he was on build 11082, 11099, or 14xxx or something there would be a lot of issues with wifi issues and performance. I don't know though? Have you got a lot of programs? How much RAM do you have installed and see if they're working properly?
