    Hi,

     

    Thank you for posting here!

     

    Before we go any further, I would like to know if you are using SteadyState 2.0. If so, slow log on is an known issue which is related to  the SteadyState service. There are many related thread talking about this issue.

     

    This issue has been fixed within SteadyState 2.5 Beta. You can try it if you have interest.

    If this issue occurs on 2.5 Beta, you can perform a Clean Boot to check the result:

    ============

    Let’s disable all startup items and third party services when booting. This method will help us determine if this issue is caused by a loading program or service. Please perform the following steps:

     

    1. Click Start, go to Run, and type "msconfig" in the open box to start the System Configuration Utility.

    2. Click the Services tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click Disable All. Make sure SteadyState service has been selected.

    3. Click the Startup tab, click Disable All and click OK.

     

    Then, restart your computer. When the "System Configuration Utility" window appears, please check the "Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts" box and click OK.

     

    4. Please check this issue again.

     

    Best Regards,
