    Every time I turn on my desktop pc. everything is fast until I get to the lock in screen. When I pres enter, I have to wait at least 15-20 seconds for log in box to appear. I heard that DeviceAssociationService could fix the problem, but after trying all the options there was no change. Fast boot option is enabled and I've got only one startup program(Win defender), so that shouldn't cause the delay. Is there a way to speed up this process?

    If applicable, replace the boot up hard drive with a boot up SSD. You'll be pleasantly surprised with the new snappiness.

    Thank's mate. I'll have that in mind. But the strange thing is, that all started after I calibrated my monitor. Before that everything was fine.(n)

    Try repairing Windows 10.

    To do this you need to "upgrade" Windows -- I know, sounds wierd --, using the same edition of Windows that's already installed. This "upgrade" requires Windows 10 installation media, which you can obtain using Microsoft's free Media Creation Tool.

    Download the correct Windows 10 ISO and then double-click it to mount it as a virtual drive. (Or if you prefer, you can create a bootable USB flash drive, open that removable drive in File Explorer and double-click "Setup" to begin the process).

    When it asks if you want to download updates, recommend selecting "Yes" to avoid potential problems.

    When prompted what you want to keep --[Important]-- choose "Keep personal files and apps".

    Now simply follow the prompts to finish setup.

    After a couple restarts, you'll have a refreshed installation of Windows 10, with your programs, apps, and settings all intact.

    Thank's again, but It's not such a big deal to go trough all this. Anyway, if something else goes wrong I'll do that. Cheers.
