Long black screen during pc bootup?

This seemed to come right after my usual maintenance like doing all my scans and defragmenting and now everytime I bootup before it going to the blue login screen I get stuck at a black screen for like 2 minutes. I have no clue what could be the problem any suggestions?

What exactly did you do what you call "maintenance"?

Just updating my programs, running ccleaner, scanning with avast, malwarebytes and windows defender, defraggler, updating my video card.

Can you go back in time using System Restore ?
If so go back to a date/time prior to "maintenance". Did avast, malwarebytes and windows defender find any virus/malware? If not a rerun fo them is not needed after "system restore". Also defraggler isn't necessary. Same problem after doing system restore? If all is fine:
  • Update programs ony-by-one whith reboots in between. And test if problems comes back
  • run ccleaner and test if problem comes back
  • update video card adn reboot and test if problem comes back

thanks for your reply, I realized I recently put a sticky note up to remind me of something and figured I would take it off and try and that seemed to be the problem, I'm getting quick boots now. I don't know why that was slowing it down but I don't seem to have the problem anymore thank you for your time though

I'm assuming it was having a Sticky note open, as soon as I closed it and tried rebooting the problem went away. edit- im talking about the program that lets you put a sticky note on your desktop not a actual paper one
