More time, PCs bogged down with too many applications, discoloration of hardware or digital general gunk in the system. There are many ways to speed up Windows but if is very long time booting the problem with your laptop or desktop PC the causes can be very specific.
The good news is that we are a few ways to solve a slow startup of Windows 10 PC.
Step 1: Stop programs load at startup
When you install new programs, many will want to start automatically when you start your PC. This can be a good thing, especially for the likes of onedrive, Google Drive or anti-virus packages. It is practical and – is essential – for some applications.
The problem is that as more applications become a member of this list, the boot times will become more. Multiply this by a year or two, and your PC may take time to be useful when you enable it.
The adoption of this relatively simple but, as Windows 10 allows you to control which applications can be made at launch. To access these institutions hold CTRL + ALT + DEL and select Task Manager from the menu that appears.
If this is the first time you use this program, you must press the “More Information” used at the bottom of the window. Now you have a list of all the programs appearing on your system.

Keep in mind that you can not remove from your PC programs. You can still use them, but they will not start automatically. And it is probably worth closing down those that have a medium or high impact.
As a guide, you can usually disable Updater or “help” programs. The associated program does not automatically update, however, so you will have to manually check for updates. As we have said, these programs are for practical reasons, most often.
If you put something off and on a function or crucial function no longer works, just reset the application in Task Manager.
Step 2: Update
Sometimes a dubious driver or bug in an update can cause slow Windows systems, so it is worth making drivers that Windows and programs are up to date.
To verify that all Windows updates are available on the Windows + I key, and then select Update and Security. Here you will see an option either check for updates or those that are available for installation.
To do this, restart your machine and see if there are improvements.
For drivers, it may be worthwhile to install a “Pilot Updater” program that hard work will do for you. Otherwise, you must manually check all your hardware from a printer on your graphics card and other hardware connected to your PC.
Step 3: Check for malware and viruses
Another simple solution is to run a full scan of your system to see if any annoying agents are hiding in the code. Malware is a frequent cause of decreased performance in Windows, so you should give your PC a regular checkup.

In the windows that you will see appears the first option Open Windows Defender. Click on this button to select Full Scan in the Options section and click scan Now.
The process takes a lot of time, so it is best to start an analysis before going to bed and leave at night. If you are using a different security package then you have to start and look for similar options.
When the scan is complete, you’ll know if your system is not compromised or not. If it is running all the recommended fixes for your software. Otherwise, you must move on to more drastic measures.
Step 4:Resetting Windows
It is advisable to reinstall Windows every 18-24 months, because the system must maintain a cheerful position. Of course, this is not a small thing, and you need to make sure that you have already backed up your data.
