having similar problem. just did a reset, but that did not resolve the issue. i have very few startup items and have foregone my usual TM antivirus (which seemed like a resource hog) and am trying the windows defender route. i have disabled superfetch but not search as i use it quite a bit.
in addition, boot is extremely slow and login takes at least a minute to allow me to enter my pin.
i have scanned with malwarebytes, spybot, defender, superantispyware and adwcleaner. all come up clean.
s.m.a.r.t passes all categories, as do both the short and long tests.
i use ccleaner regularly so there's not a bunch of 'crap' on my computer.
i thought the reset would help, but it hasn't improved a thing. in addition, the first time i use windows search, only the first letter types in--the rest i usually have to wait a minute before it will receive the rest of the search request.
i am baffled. thank you for any assistance and/or insight here.
