Windows is taking significantly longer to start up after I reinstalled it, and this is without even doing anything hardware wise. From pushing the on button to launching a browser, it used to take approximately 50 seconds. But now it stays in the black background loading screen for about a minute and completely bypasses the blue loading screen. Is there any explanation for this? I haven't registered the product key yet if that would make any difference, but i'm hesitant to do so in case I want to reinstall again because of this.
P.S. I know waiting another minute or two doesn't sound like a big deal, but the fact is I'm waiting two to three times as long to reach the desktop as I did a week ago for no apparent reason. If you need more system specs/info, I'd be happy to oblige.
