Why is your computer slow to start up?

Whether you’re trying to kick off Monday morning with an early start, or enjoy an early dart on Friday, you’ll want your computer to start-up swiftly.

The good news is that there’s no reason that it shouldn’t, and there are fixes out there to speed up the process.

It’s easy to get used to lag on start-up as it increases a little each day. However, instead of making a cup of tea while it tries to launch, try making these changes instead:

Disable any startup programs you don’t need

A common reason for computers experiencing a lengthy start-up is because they are trying to load multiple apps, so they are ready to use on start-up.

Ask yourself how many apps do you really need to start your day? You can disable apps on start-up, so Windows doesn’t load them automatically upon log in. This effectively cuts down your overall start-up time.

Look at your task manager and identify apps marked High Impact, and consider disabling them if you don’t need them immediately.

Makes space in your C drive

When you boot drive becomes close to full it can severely impact your computer’s performance. Try deleting unwanted apps and files you don’t use or move them to an external storage solution like the cloud.

Scan for malware

Malicious software can also slow your device’s ability to start quickly too. Try running a scan for malware on your computer. Robust antivirus will be able to detect and isolate malware and stop it from affecting performance.
