wcifs causing 1 1/2 minute boot delay

By s308302 ·
I’m running a fresh full instal of Win10 on my 2012 vintage HP Pavilion dv6 after upgrading to a SanDisk 160gb SSD. The only other software installed is Office 365. Event Manager System log shows that it takes 1 1/2 minutes for File System Filter to load “wcifs”. During the 1 1/2 minute wait (which happens between the blue Windows “window” and the desktop, the screen is dark with no messages. I have done all of the things that a reasonably competent person would (virus scans, hardware and software updates, all system devices loaded and working, etc) and even messed around with enabling and disabling Fast Boot, and various start up services. None of this makes any difference to a very annoying slow boot up.

The problem is something to do with wcifs taking forever to load and I can’t find any sensible solutions to the problem. Any help and ideas gratefully received!

That sounds really fast to me for a system that old

I had a unit here recently that took 45 minutes to reboot after applying a single update to Windows 10 and that was simply because of Low System Resources.

I upgraded the RAM to as much as the NB could take and that reduced to 5 minutes so I would suggest upgrading the units RAM as much as possible and then hoping for the best as Windows 10 has Minimum Requirements at which is is basically unusable and a system that old is unlikely to even have those Resources possiblelet alone available.
