I have a client's Windows 10 computer that doesn't log in correctly. Once you get past the login screen, the screen goes blank except for the mouse cursor. This will persist for somewhere between 5 and 15 minutes (I've not timed it). This happens even on a new user I just created.
It passes chkdsk, sfc, and dism without errors.
Through trial and error I identified that disabling the AppReadiness service fixes this particular symptom. This raises other problems with functions that rely on this service.
I've set it for Automatic (Delayed) and also Manual but the problem persists.
I found numerous references to this, but they seem to relate to the earlier 1703 version where this is 1709. The solutions I found regarding that had to do with rights on a folder (they were the same as on my computer that doesn't have the problem) or keys to be removed from the registry that don't exist on the problem computer.
There are no System Restore points from a time before when the problem started.
Has anyone else experienced this with 1709? Any suggestions on how to resolve it?
