  1. Sorry, made a mistake in the in the system file check option 2. The line 'After you press enter...' should read 'After you press enter wait until the 'dism.exe' run has finished then type....
  2. This problem can have several causes. (1) Normally, when windows takes a long time to startup it’s an indication that it’s struggling to load something. This could be a piece of software, but can usually be attributed to hardware; especially a hard drive. The drive could be faulty or incompatible with the port it’s connected too. For instance a Sata 1/2 connected to a Sata 3 port. You should check all you’re hardware to ensure it’s not faulty. These types of problems do not show in ‘Device manager’. (2) Try a system check. Open the Command Prompt (Admin) type:- dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth (press spacebar after each entry) Press Enter. After you press enter type:- sfc /scannow (press spacebar after each entry) (3) Try running your computer in ‘Verbose’ mode The ‘Verbose’ option should only be used for troubleshooting. If you suspect some process or App is delaying your computer from booting up shutting down or restarting then implement the ‘Verbose’ option. With this option activated you’ll be able to see what processes are involved in boot up shutdown and restart. Hopefully you’ll be able to isolate, (Usually an App or process halting or stuttering through) the App or process, causing the problem and deal with it. Once fixed, disable the ‘Verbose’ option as it has no value running on a healthy computer. There are two ways to activate this option in Windows 10, one with a ‘Registry fix’ and the other through ‘Local Group Policy Editor’. However, before you activate this option, keep in mind; if the problem is not ‘Startup’ or ‘Shutdown’ related, the ‘Verbose’ option may appear inactive or you may only get a fleeting glimpse of the processes, and if you have an SSD drive, blink and you’ll miss it! Local Group Policy Editor Key Win + r, Type, gpedit.msc, click OK Path: -Computer Config…\Administrative Templates\System Once the ‘Local Group Policy Editor’ is open, use the ‘Path’ above to navigate your way to the ’System Folder’. Select it and in the main pane scroll down to find the entry, ’Display highly detailed...’ ‘Double click’ it, or right click and select ‘Edit’. In the ‘status messages’ page select ‘Enable’ Click ‘Apply’, ‘OK’ Registry Fix Key Win + r, Type, regedit, click OK Path: - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System Using the path above, navigate your way to the ‘System’ folder. ‘Right click’ the ‘System’, folder select ‘New’ then click, ‘DWORD (32-bit) Value’. In the main pane rename the ‘New Value#1’ to ‘VerboseStatus’. Once renamed, ‘double click’ it or ’Right click’ it and select ’Modify.’ In the ‘Value data’ box change the ‘0’ to ‘1’. Click OK. Close the registry. The new setting takes effect immediately.
