Hello All

I am new to W10 so don't know if this is normal or not. From pressing the power on button it takes just over three minuets before it's ready for use, is there a reason for this and if so what should I be doing?

Regards Silversurf

Please post the service tag.

Try disabling Bullguard temporarily and see if it boots up faster.

I would go to Dell support and enter your Service Tag then run the Diagnostics shown on the webpage.

Hello Couriant - It's a brand new Dell desktop that came with W10 installed.

Hello RT - I have BullGuard Internet Security installed.

Hmm... perhaps the machine has bloatware on there but judging the specs it shouldn't take that long.

Agreed Couriant...
My thought is, yes it's Dell, so does include bloatware... I have a Dell :rolleyes:
But I've tamed it...

A Start Up manger program might help (I use Glary Utilities (free) )

You can also use from the Windows Start button, Start>Run, type msconfig, and OK, and choose the Startup tab... (it might direct you to Task Manager) to disable what you don't need to run at a restart.

Hello All - I have contacted Dell as I paid for three years Dell Premium Support, on Tuesday 6th November they are going to carry out a remote control of this PC in an attempt to resolve the issue. I will report back here when this has been done. My own personal opinion is that it's loading loads of stuff that is not needed. Being new to W10 I am not sure what should be running and what can be disabled or even deleted.

Regards Silversurf

Hello All - Dell have carried out a remote connection, they disabled many items and uninstalled some others as the HD was running at 100%. When finished the HD was running at 4% to 5%. They asked to let things settle down for a couple of days and then to contact them again if I am still having problems with a long start up.
