  have a dell ins. 1500 laptop with 8 g Ram. Running win 10. It has always booted in 30 seconds or less. I have been online since 1998 and am ANAL about my pcs. I fix them  for all of my friends.So I know all of the  things  to do. But something has all of a sudden slowed it down last week.NO malware, spyware, etc. I use ccleaner, malwarebytes  , and superantispyware. ONLY my AV (avast) starting up. All else disable. Updates done. Turned OFF fast boot, as suggested in some posts.Runs perfectly once booted, but all of a sudden 2 minutes to boot. Suggestions? Fizes? Different software suggestions?? Check my event logs but I have no idea there. Thanks!

Was it booting very quickly right after you turned fast startup off?

 

I would try turning it on again just to see if that makes any kind of substantial difference, just as a data point, and then report back.

No, I just turned it off this AM and rebooted. Made no difference.

What I'm getting at is that in certain circumstances having fast start turned on can make a major difference in boot time.

 

I do not like fast startup because the system hibernation file it uses can become corrupted and if it does some of the behaviors you see can be utterly baffling.  That being said, turn it back on again to see if you get a significant pickup in speed again since turning it off causes the hibernation file to be removed and turning it on again will create one again for your next shutdown/startup cycle.

 

Restart always causes the hibernation file to be deleted then recreated if fast startup is active.  This means that in order to test my thesis you must turn on fast startup, do a shutdown, then restart your machine to see if there is any difference in boot time.
