Hi guys,

I am on windows 10 and when I boot into windows I have a few problems on each boot that requires I end the process for DWM.exe which then restarts it. I should not have to do this every boot and am trying to figure out how to fix this:

- If I resize a window I cannot see the box (think Aero effects)
- If a new window pops up and I scroll I cannot see whats scrolling unless I move the window and let go
- If I right click it will take about 30 seconds to show the window.

Now if I end DWM.exe all of these problems go away and the system goes back to full speed.

Any ideas? sfc /scannow does not show anything and its odd that on my power system DWM.exe basically makes my system come to a stand still on each boot.

I remember having a similar issue before and it was a program like Ultramon that had a conflict.

Try disabling startup processes, starting with display related things like SVP 4 Pro and DisplayFusion. Trial and error. I bet you'll find it.
