Re: Windows updates

Updates patch "holes" in the OS and do not cause a slow satrtup.. the only thing that can cause slow startups are the number of programs and services you have running.

 

I suggest you take a look at what is running at startup.

Re: Windows updates

Are you referring to the startup immediately after you install the updates?  If so, it takes a while as usually after you install updates, they aren't truly installed and configured until you re-boot and then windows will do the configuration it needs to do.  This will cause a slower startup for that first time, but as jmwills stated, it shouldn't affect start ups afterwards.
