The first one is to run a full system scan with your anti-virus software to remove any possible infections from the PC. Then press and hold Ctrl, Shift and Esc to invoke the Task Manager. Then select the Startup tab and then sort out the items according to their Startup impact rating. For instance, you can disable all those in High category, except for the crucial security software installed on the computer.
The second option is to enable FastStartup and then optimize startup in Windows 10 by enabling the fast boot-up and shutdown times through its special Hybrid Startup and Shutdown option, which puts the system into hibernation state. This option can be activated via Control Panel > Power Options.
To do that click on "Choose what the power button does" from the left pane, and then select "Change settings that are currently unavailable." New options under Shutdown settings will appear. Just tick the "Turn on fast startup" checkbox and click "Save changes." Then reboot the computer and hold "Windows Key + R" as soon as the desktop appears. Enter "services.msc" in the Run dialog box and hit Enter key. Take note of the list of services which appear to prolong their launch. Right-click those meeting the criteria, open them, and change their setting from default to delayed start and click save. Then reboot and see if the OS will start faster.
Let me know how it went.
My OS boot and usage has always been painfully slow. I had a SATA 2,hdd before the wd blue and the speeda i was getting were to be expected , the sequential speed or whatever was 55-60MB/s. There isn't the improvement i had hoped there will be with this new hdd. Boot times are nearly identical and i still sometimes hit 100% whe not exactly doing much.
I've been thinkin about switching the HDD 1:1 for an SSD, a Samsung 650 EVO. It'll fit my needs , i need a fast hdd for AAE and Cinema4D and CS. 128gb will suit me , I think.
P.S. FastStartup doesn't appeal to me. I want my PC to be entirely shut down,no need to be only hibernated during the nights. I shut down my PC every night,as well as if i'm outside for more than 30mins,so a complete shut down is preferable.
I have Razer Synapse,Catalyst and Skype,Steam, utorrent ,onedrive and some other stuff. Disabling all but Razer,Catalyst and Skype gave me the following results:
From button press to windows logo dissapearing: 13secs
Black screen: 7secs
Please Wait screen: 7secs
Logging in: 16 secs
It's all pretty fast, excluding the login. Any idea how I can speed it up, Im not even connected to my microsoft account,it's a local one without a password.Edited by hotwheels1997 - 10/7/15 at 10:19am
