I've been having extremely slow startup times with windows lately. From windows logo to welcome screen about a minute then another 4 minutes my HDD is sitting at 100% usage. This really slows things down to a crawl. Only then it gradually goes back down to 0%...

 

System specs:

i5-6600k

16GB DDR4 RAM

1TB WD Blue 7200RPM

 

 

Things I have tried to far

- disabling superfetch and windows search services

- malwarebytes scan

- boot-time scan with avast

- change page file size

- disabling all non windows services (issue still persists)

- disable programs in task manager for startup

- sfc /scannow 

 

I tried a few other things but can't really think of them because of how frustrated I am. The system is very responsive in safe mode. Any advice would be highly appreciated, I'm at the point of pulling my hair out.

Hi z45 ,

 

Looks very quiet here .. no response to your post.. I had the same frustrating issue recently.. 

After much searching /adjusting/disabling stuff I've uninstalled Avast and refreshed Firefox , I think some of the add ons

needed updating etc.. Since then.. ( touch wood )  no problems with startup

In your case Chrome using a lot of memory , I'd be taking a closer look at it & changing settings to manual startup for Chrome might help.

Good luck !

pcblues :)
