Hello friends at gtg,

 

I am at the end of my rope in putting up with the following two issues that occur every time I reboot:

 

1. The hard drive spins at 100% for 5-10 mins after every reboot. This isn't a new problem and the offending process seems to be the services.msc, related to the windows 10 search. There are solutions all over about disabling this feature so that this doesn't happen. I'm happy to do that, but if there was a solution that prevents this HDD overworking and allows the search indexing service to continue to do its job, that would be ideal.

 

2. I lose my internet connection after every reboot. This is the primary problem I'd like to solve. The problem can easily be fixed by rebooting my router/modem, but I'm done with this time-consuming, impractical solution to this issue. I've tried to find solutions online, but most reporting similar problems have a slight difference to the issue I seem to be having, and the one solution I did find that seemed to line-up involved manually entering an IP/gateway address. I'd rather not enter a manual solution that might cause further problems to be solved down the road, but at this point my patience has run out and I'm happy to do whatever to end these time-consuming boot-up shenanigans.

 

 

Thank you so much in advance,

Paul
