Often, when you turn on the PC, the system boots slowly, and the computer runs slowly during operation. Such a long boot of Windows 10 can be caused by various factors that must be installed in order to solve the problem and speed up the system.
Why does Windows 10 load for a long time when I turn on my PC?
The reasons why a computer starts slowly and slows down can be different. We single out the most common:
- Fragmentation of the system drive. If during installation of the OS and formatting the partitions the wrong type and format of the disk was chosen, most files will be divided into small partitions. The more such partitions, the more time the system needs to read information from files. As a result, the computer boots slowly and slows down during operation.
- Not enough free hard disk space.. The developers of Microsoft claim that for the normal operation of the system requires a minimum of 50 GB of free space. It is necessary not only for performing various operations, but also for updating.
- Application conflict. After installing an antivirus program on Windows 10, the computer and laptop can load and slow down for a long time. If you didn’t disable the built-in antivirus before installing the protector, you should correct this situation and deactivate the standard utility. Comp noticeably speed up. Also, do not install several defenders.
- Startup Fill unnecessary applications and services.
- Trash in the registry.
- Driver conflict. If before updating the problem you updated the drivers to a more recent version, you should roll back the software to an earlier state.
- Hardware malfunction.
- Virus and malware.
What to do if Windows 10 starts to boot slowly?
If your computer or laptop takes a very long time to load at the start and is dumb during operation, it is worth using a few recommendations.

- We clean the Windows 10 registry using the programs and utilities available to you.
- Check your PC for viruses and malware using free utilities.
- We remove unnecessary programs from startup. To do this, click “Win R” and enter “msconfig”.
A new window will open. Go to the autoload tab and uncheck those programs and applications that we rarely use. Click OK.
Also, in the Services tab, you can disable those services that you do not need. For example, a firewall if you use a third-party antivirus or print service if you do not have a printer.
- We start disk defragmentation. Go to “My Computer” and right-click on drive C. Select “Properties”.
A new window will open. Go to the “Service” tab. Click the “Optimize” button.
The following window will open. Select the local drive C. Click “Analyze”, and after evaluating the state of the disk. “Optimize”.
After defragmentation reboot the computer.
- We clear the system of garbage. If the computer began to work slowly after installing the update, you should start the utility to clean the system from debris. Each new Microsoft update requires 1 GB of free space. Occupying this place, updates take away free memory from the system for quick processing of specified operations. You can use CCleaner, Windows 10 Manager, and other programs to optimize Windows 10. You can also use the built-in utility and clean your laptop or computer yourself.
- You can test the performance of the hardware components of Windows 10 using separate tests or by performing a few simple steps. Click “Start”, “Control Panel.” In the search bar, enter “Counters and means of performance.” A window opens with a list of hardware components. After some verification, a general assessment will appear.
If you select “Additional tools” in the left menu, you can get data for each individual component.
- If the laptop slows down, it is worth activating “Quick Start”. To do this, open the “Control Panel” and go to “Power Settings”. We set the mark “Quick start.”
Therefore, if your computer or laptop starts to work very slowly, it slows down when loading or after updating the system, we recommend that you follow the above recommendations.
