How to perform a Clean Boot.
Warning: Disabling items in Services or Startup may leave your anitivirus disabled until the process is ended. For this reason I would suggest that you perform this process off line.
Press the keys to open Run, then type msconfig in the search box. This will open System Configuration.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, you should enter the password or provide confirmation.
(1) Click/tap on the General tab.
(2) Click/tap on the Selective startup option.
(3) Remove the check mark in the Load startup items check box.
4. Click on the Services tab.
5. Place a check mark in the Hide all Microsoft services check box, this will remove the Microsoft Services from the list but will still be running.
6. Click Disable all, this will remove all of the check marks in the Services list.
7. Click on Apply then OK
Click on Restart in the window that opens.
When the computer is restarted it will boot normally.
Let me know if the problem persists after restarting the computer.
Share your knowledge. Its a way to achieve immortality.

Hi, more importantly why do you want to run a clean boot? Msconfig is a diagnostic util and unchecking a service does not alter that service start status in the registry, or start programs start status in the registry. It is meant for diagnostics only, after determining the issue you need to properly disable or remove offending processes, this is not done through Msconfig.
It is also far less useful then sysinternals utils such as autoruns, process explorer etc...

Thanks Freebooter and Jenae for your response. No particular problem at this time other than I E being very slow in W10. I did use
Freebooter's instructions and did a clean boot. No problems.

I think you are still missing the point. A Clean Boot doesn't resolve problems, it only stops third party service/apps from running for test purposes. When you follow the instructions all of the third party services will be stopped from running. When you restart the computer as instructed in step 7 you will either not experience the problem, in this case this would mean that one of your third party services is at fault. If restarting doesn't resolve this problem then it isn't one of these services.
Once you have determined that a service is at fault you can start adding the checks, the first one should be replace all of the checks in one half of the services and restart the computer. If the problem doesn't appear remove the checks from the one half and add the checks to the second half of the services and reboot.
You can divide the half of the services by half to further the process of elimination.
I hope this makes sense to you.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
