Got me a HP laptop. I bought it early last year. It's been a great little computer. Nice and fast. Until about a week ago when we finally got internet back in the house. It used to wake from sleep and be ready for the password to get to the desktop in less then a second after I moved the mouse to wake it. It now takes up to two minutes. The time between the lock screen and when I can input my password has gone from a few seconds to thirty as well. Recent virus scans by Windows Defender and TrendMicro all say I'm clean. Malwarebytes says I have zero infections. Windows update says I have all the latest updates except the latest version of Windows 10, it was buggy so I went back to version 1709. I'm at a loss to explain why the damn thing is being slow, I can only think that Windows is doing so much in the background when booting over the internet that it is being slowed down. Should I turn off some services? Reset Windows? Any help would be appreciated. Thx.
