  1. Should I disable update from the beggening? I believe it would be a security risk
  2. Updates. My father has been installing software and every time he installs a new program he restarts and checks time. Again, after a couple of hours it starts running slow out of no where. I will try to use Autoruns to see if there is any piece of software that may be slowing the system down on startup. The faulty second drive could have been a problem but, we thought of that early on and disconnected all drives except the main PCI-e ssd. Still we have no idea. Re-installing windows solves the issue temporarily.
  3. It does not affect BIOS UEFI appearance time. The SSD is brand new and has no files in it. Only the windows install.
  4. I have been building PCs for over 7 years. Although my main operating systems are MacOs and Linux, I still know my way through windows. About 3 or 4 months ago, my father's PC started getting slower and slower boot times on his R7 2700 machine. He said he felt slow downs and that perhaps he needed an upgrade (he does architecture and 3D renders). I told him he had a really good build with that 8 core and that perhaps he just needed to get a new SSD. He upgraded to a PCI-E M.2 SSD and re-install Windows. Boot times where back to normal and everything seemed ok. However, after a day, the boot times started slowly increasing from 25 seconds all the way to a full minute and a half. He was convinced it was a graphics card issue to I donated by 1080ti so that he could work with it meanwhile. He re-installed windows and everything was magically back to normal. After 3 days all the problems came back. I am convinced this is a software issue not a hardware issue. The bios screen appears after 14 seconds and then it is windows that takes a really long time load. The fact that it gradually increases is concerning and I can't quite understand it. My father is currently re-installing windows once again, this time with no other hard-drives but the SSD installed and only 16gb of ram on dual-channel. Any ideas on what could be happening? - R7 2700 - X370 Gaming X Asrock - GTX 1080ti - 16 gb 2400 Mhz Ram.
