Is it safe to delay security software on windows 10 boot? I have antivirus,antimalware,antiexploit and antiransomeware. I do not really do anything until they are all up and running,or does this even matter?

Are you talking about services with type "Automatic (Delayed start)" ?

Bootracer has a feature to delay startup programs.I use Glary Utilities to delay or disable other areas.The delay by default on bootracer is set at 1000ms,I forgot to mention I also use antilogger free.
