Hello, when I first bought my computer, (Asus tuf gaming a15) the bootup time was really fast. After a few months of using it, I've realized that the bootup time is really slow now, about 30 seconds compared to when I first got it, around 5-10. Can someone help me? Thank you!

And the more you add the worse it will get. To go back to the original speed would require removing everything that has been changed since you bought it.

Only if you want it to go back to the original brand-new out-of-the-box speed.


Something else you could try is performing a Clean Boot. If everything is working fine now you can keep it this way or, you can add one Startup item and/or Service at a time and reboot. Repeat this process until you notice the slowdown once again and you willl have found your culprit.

Hello, I've heard of a clean boot before but I don't know what it does. Can you explain? Does it erase my files and things? Thank you.

Every computer will take longer to boot over time after it gets updates and new software is installed. That is normal. I think you may be worrying about nothing.

My computer takes about 15-20 seconds to get to the login page. It gets to the desktop in another 15-20 seconds for a total of 30-40 seconds.

I consider that fast compared to my old laptop which takes about 75 seconds to get to the login page. It gets to the desktop in another 30 seconds for a total of 105 seconds.

If my Windows 10 PC's booted from a cold start and were ready for use in 30 seconds, I would be very happy.

SpywareDr and MisterEd51 are correct about boot-up times getting longer over time because of installed apps and debris accumulation.

An easy thing to check is which programs are running at startup. Any programs not needed at startup can be disabled.

Task Manager > Startup

I only measured the time from when I pressed the power button to when I got to the desktop. The actual time is longer because after the desktop appears there are still startup programs running in the background. Your computer is really only ready when these programs are finished.

Software can't directly measure boot time because there is nothing running when you press the power button. However, there are programs that measure reboot times. This is the time to shutdown and reboot to a state that your computer is ready to use. The following shows some programs that can do that.

Here are some results from BootRacer

To do a much more extensive analysis you can do the following:
1. Download and install the Windows Performance Toolkit
2. Run Windows Performance Recorder (WPR) to record boot time data
3. Run Windows Performance Analyzer (WPA) to show results from WPR
