Windows 10 slow to boot

1 Endorsement
Last Modified: 2017-11-24

A user has a Lenovo 320-17IKB 80XM - Core i5 7200U - 2.5 GHz - Win 10 64 bits - 8 GB RAM - 1 TB HDD

He has had it for about two months now and he is disappointed by the device's performance, especially during boot up which takes approximately two minutes, and then another two minutes to get Outlook 2016 going

I have updated the motherboard BIOS and other drivers, removed Dropbox, disabled Microsoft telemetry, disabled Windows Defender, disabled Outlook hardware acceleration and disabled unnecessary plugins

The only other thing I haven't disabled is the antivirus ESET Nod32

But the user is still dissatisfied. It has reached a point where the user refuses to switch off his computer so as to avoid the annoyance caused by the time to reboot

I'm not sure what to try next to obtain any significant improvement

any ideas or suggestions ?
