Crazy slow boot time / Idle 300+ seconds RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys, i updated to the most recent major update of windows 10 recently and since I isntalled it I now have boot times of 300-500sec from a normal 25sec boot.

    Can you help? what info do you need? i've done a boot scan on Windows perf toolkit and have the results but I am unable to decipher them.

  • Hi,

    If you have appllied the security update against the intel meltdown threat, it may cause this performance issue http://zd.net/2CYOzVO

    Or it's caused by another thing;

    What you can do to troubleshoot that the right way and get answers to your problem is;

     - Download and Install windows Performance Toolkit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/get-started/adk-install . Choose the package corresponding to your Windows version.

    - Record a trace using Windows Performance Recorder using these options: https://justpaste.it/1dm88

    - Compress the resulting file

    - Share it through https://www.transfernow.net/en/ or any other file sharing platform.


    I'll analyze your trace file and give you a feedback.


    See you...
