    Windows loading up too slowly


    So my windows is installed on my SSD and up until 2 days my windows would load up very fast. as of right now i am having alot of issues with that. to describe it, its like my windows freezes for 15-20 second after loading up into desktop where as i even open up start and type anything nothing would show up and i cant even get back to desktop.
    before you ask here are the things ive done so far.
    ssd benchmark test
    malware/antivirus/tds check =0 result
    checking startup app startup and turning off as much as i could
    sfc scannow command / disk clean up/disk optimization/disk error
    removing recently installed program such as my new router (linksys n600) setup (which i think issue started after installing it)
    ive tried anything that i could think off but my windows seems to freeze for 15 second before loading up the rest of start up apps like mouse keyboard program etc, does anyone know what could be the issue?

    I had this problem after updating Geforce Experience to latest Version, Boot time went from 36 seconds to 1 min 55 seconds, after this fix I got from Geforce Experience Forum, it went back to 36 seconds.


    1. Go into your Services (Task Manager > Services > Open Services or just Search for it)
    2. Find NVIDIA Streamer Service
    3. Right Click > Properties
    4. Change Startup Type to Automatic (Delayed Start) or Disable


    If you use Nvidia shield products to stream your PC games, you will have to wait a few minutes until it starts up again after boot or manually start this service to get that functionality back. Only select disable if you do not care for this feature.

    I had just cleaned up my computer to do a system restore, and thought I had picked up a virus , tried everything scans the lot and eventually a restore point.

    The only changes after clean up was an update to Geforce Experience, after the restore everything was fine until update reinstalled when I launched Geforce Experience and the problems started again.

    Went to the Geforce Experience forum to see if anyone else had problems and found the cure.

    Website for Forum is.
