This question has been asked before, but none of the answers worked for me.
After about 5 minutes and 41 seconds (yes, I timed it), my desktop shows up as normal.
It only happens on one account; other accounts are unaffected.
During the black screen:
- CPU: ~12%.
- Disk: ~6%
- Ethernet: random spikes.
...Which is pretty much equal to my idle usage, once windows starts properly.
Looking at the task manager and sorting by CPU usage, wsappx was the biggest task, at ~12%.
Once Windows actually starts, everything seems to work normally.
Ctrl+Alt+Del - Works as expected.
Ctrl+Shift+Esc - Brings up task manager.
Task manager - Works, that's where I got the numbers above from. Doesn't show any foreground tasks running, spare task manager itself.
Win+R - Nope.
Win+P - Nope.
