    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?
