Solved Typed characters are slow to appear on-screen in Windows 10

Gigabyte / Ga-78lmt-s2p
November 8, 2015 at 20:48:39
Specs: Win 7/64 Home, 8gig
After booting into Win 10 I have to enter a password in order for my password data programme to sync and also start however it can take some minutes for the letters to appear on screen. Once they have appeared they appear normally after that.

Before I had this password programme installed (Dashlane) the same would happen if I went straight to my bank password after booting up. Once again once the letters appeared typing was normal after that.

Any and all advice will be appreciated. Regards

Makes me think something is hogging it on startup. It would be worth looking in Task Manager > Startup to see if anything there is high impact and unnecessary (like the old msconfig days).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Software mixes vary. Let us know about anything that it says is high impact. I assume you only have one virus checker running in the background in real time.

Only Malwarebytes and Windows Defender. My Task Manager only show 5 items in the startup and they are all established programmes. Could I have problem with Services perhaps?

The trouble with two virus checkers running all the time is they check each other and can cause issues. It is OK if one of them is not running but just available to run checks when needed.

If you are running the full MWB (rather then the free version), then just as an experiment turn off the real time monitoring in Windows Defender just to see if it makes any difference. You open the program and you will see the check box in the Settings tab.

I guess a Service is a possible culprit but there are stacks of them so it's not easy to suggest the best way forward. If you do go that way try to keep a track of changes. Here is the default list for Windows 10:

Just a little point about that list. You don't have to set them to Running (or Stopped). They will "do their thing" after a restart depending on the Auto/Manual settings and what the programs request.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks for the link Derek, I'm inclined to use the suggested download and restore all the services to default and take it from there. I may have done something recently to "improve" the system and gummed up something critical. I'll report back later.

First to Derek:

I disabled my A/V programmes MBAM and DEfender and it made no difference whatsoever so methinks the problem does not lie there. Services have been discounted so I'm at a wee bit of a loss.

To John,

I downloaded "Tweaking" and ran it strictly according to the programme recommendations and it ran forever. On restart I was presented with a black screen for all of 2 minutes which caused a bit of palpitation until I noticed the computer light still seeking. However when it came to typing in my log-on name I still had a 2 minute wait.

I also ran it on my Win 7 and the run was successful in all respects. The log in both installations is huge... there are just hundreds of entries.

In both cases the programme "fixed" many entries and restored functions that the Win 10 install seemed to have forgotten and both 7 & 10 seem to perform OK

I'll let some time pass and run it again on both systems although how I'll compare the logs I have no idea.

There does not (at this stage) appear to be much else I can do so I'll stick with it but thank you both for your help and suggestions

Regards.

A quick update here John things have changed a bit now. The boot process to the desktop has improved somewhat and the sign-on to my password programme is quick(er). It seems that update downloading has been restored because he system has just completed an install of updates.

There is no link to the update page in Win 10 so I'm snookered there. I wonder if the fact that I had disabled updates in Services may have been the culprit.

Off to a quick BBQ across the road... back later (most likely tomorrow)

Actually I have not downloaded updates for ages having vdisabled the services. I got fedup waiting for the PC to shut down on account of updates being downloaded and then waiting ages for it to boot up because they were bing installed. It seems I'll have to put up with it now.

I took my tablet with me and now I'm grabbing a moment between snags to reply. I'll come back tomorrow with developments.

Well the sign-on on the desktop has certainly improved but it would be quicker for me to walk down to the bank while I wait for the bank sign-on to complete one slow digit at a time.

It certainly seems that something is loading in the background because the computer LED flickers continuously. I think the updates loading had something to do with it but there is obviously something else on the go as well. But what? (he sighed).

Following up in your image links I see that the system is still installing updates so that probably accounts for the continual LED flicker. I'll need to wait and see and report back later.

No... it took an hour and it appears (as I understand it) to be an update to my existing Windows !0 which I believe is being discussed in the "Lounge". Whatever it is my problem has been solved with regard to the slow appearance of typed characters.

The system has all the updates to Skype plus Messaging Microsoft Wifi Sway (which has Office connections) and one or two more. I also have Skype Video which I never had before and it is referred to in the link from John

Perfect Ewen, I figured it must installed correctly as you got Skype.

Telstra Bigpond, and I must say it is pretty darn quick 95% of the time. Actually the notification preceding the update said it would take approximately 30 minutes so an hour wasn't to bad.
