My laptop usually starts for 30 seconds. But in the last two months something happened. Now it boots always for 120 seconds. I looked into Event viewer and I found that the first slow boot was in 11th August 2018 - 66 seconds. I've tried many things - I disabled all non-microsoft services, I disabled all startup applications in task manager, I updated all drivers, I even reinstalled some suspicious drivers. Nothing changed.

I can't see which process lasts so long in the ETL file.



There are several ways to optimize Windows for better performance. You can follow the steps provided below on how you can improve PC performance in Windows 8.1:

Method 1: Run the Performance troubleshooter.

Press Windows key + Q on your keyboard. Type Control Panel and then hit Enter. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Under System Security, select Check for performance issues. Method 2: Disable unnecessary startup programs.

Press the Ctrl + Alt + Delete, and then select Task Manager. Select More details on the lower left corner, and then select Startup tab. Select the startup program that you want to disable, and then select Disable. Method 2: Free up drive space on your computer's hard drive. Slow performance can also be caused by lack of space on the hard drive. Deleting/removing unnecessary files can help improve computer performance.
