Good day probuddha. I'm somewhat lost.
What are your boot times now in seconds.
Do you have a backup and/or a restore point before you started all these changes?

Good day Jack!

I just recorded my booting time and from pressing the power button to the time the desktop appeared is 1 min & 55 secs.

And no, the only restore point I have it from today morning when I reinstalled Windows Performance Toolkit to run the boot traces. For some weird reason, the restore points I created previously gets deleted even though it is turned on for my C drive

Thanks!

Slow startup is usually caused by an incompatible device/driver.
The first thing I would recommend is disconnecting everything that's not essential, and see does that
solve the issue. If it does, then add devices back over time to see if/when the problem returns.
if its drivers, then make sure you update them all, that and go into windows update and install anything
available there, and if it is USB devices, what u can do, is while ur in windows, unplug all usb devices and
then re-plug them, it should get the newer drivers off windows update for it

Hi Julia

Thanks for your response

The only devices connected to my PC is the keyboard and mouse. Also, all the drivers are updated as per Windows. Automatic updates is set to automatic


Thanks!

Sorry it's taken so long - been working on something critical the last 3 days. In reviewing this trace, I can see that the system is actually a bit worse in some ways, performance-wise, than it was previously - but it is better in some ways as well. I'm going to grab symbols from this trace (which will take awhile) and try to provide some insight.

My time is still monopolized this weekend, but I can tell you the bulk of your issues are caused by a process called EasyRedirect.exe - Avast is still hammering the disk otherwise, though, so be aware.

EasyRedirect.exe refers to the IP changing software easy-hide-ip.com that I use on demand. After providing the last boot trace, when I tried to run the software, it gave me an error saying LSP is missing. I reinstalled the software and the error went away.

The duration of the black screen post the welcome screen has reduced to about 15 seconds now.

Would you like me to do an updated boot trace for you?

Many thanks!
