    Logon to MS account slow


    After rebooting (which seems to take ages) my Logon after putting the password in seems to take ages about 15 seconds or so before desktop will show. Is this because of the internet, or anyone else experiencing this?

    This is not particularly slow log on time
    Could you please attach a screenshot of your system specs so that I can fully assess this issue?
    Thanks,
    Cal
