    Windows 8 System takes more than 5 minutes to check the authentication during logging in

    When I turn ON the Windows 8 System, it asks for the username and password. I entered the username and password. It took minimum 5 long minutes to check the authentication. It is not supposed to take such time. What might be the problem? Please, help me!

    Dear friend,It seems that there is a problem with your hard disk due to which your system is taking more time during log in. If there is, bad sectors on your hard disk then may cause the problem you have. You should scan your hard disk for bad sectors by using any of the following utilities: HDD Regenerator, HD tune, etc. You can upgrade your traditional HDD drive with a costlier SSD drive, which are typically many times faster than the HDD drive. There can be virus problem also. In that case you should scan complete HDD drive with an antivirus. Thanks!

    Hi dear friend,

    Whenever the Start up ... program are more ...then it takes some time to load all the programs services ...

    So, first of all press ctrl+shift+Esc combination ... then click on Start up tab....and Disable the Unwanted start up applications

    after that press windows key+R and type msconfig and press ENTER key

    and then disable the unwanted services .... then restart the PC and check ..............and again if the same problem persists try to follow these

    simply press windows key+I combination


    then click on CHANGE PC SETTINGS option from the charm bar


    now choose GENERAL option at the left pane .....and click on GET STARTED button under the REFRESH YOUR PC WITHOUT EFFECTING YOUR FILES option at the Right pane


    now follow the screen instructions .......then it will be resolved

    ALL THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!
