Hi, I'm new to Bleeping Computer blog, with a problem I'm sure you've heard.  Win 10 slow to boot, plus numerous other problems; like no audio on a new computer.  

When I say slow to boot i'm talking about 5 minutes, and some more fooling around after my desktop is full and apparently ready to go.  I got the Farbar recovery scan tool, anyone who can read it?  One thing I do notice during the wait for the booting.  It says "waiting for cache" and that stays for quite a while.  

Appreciate any help or advice from anyone who has "been there, done that".

First make sure that all your drivers all up to date, by checking for new versions on the manufacturer website. many times the drivers are causing delay when Windows starts up.


If updating you drivers doesn't improve your boot time then you can fellow these steps to identify the culprit:


- Download and Install windows Performance Toolkit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/get-started/adk-install . Choose the package corresponding to your Windows version.

- Record a trace using Windows Performance Recorder using these options: https://justpaste.it/1dm88

- Compress the resulting file (Important)

- Share it through https://www.transfernow.net/en/ or any other file sharing platform.


I'll analyze your trace file and give you a feedback.


See you…
