Have you had a look in Event viewer to see if that shows the start up problem.

And have you run the likes of Malwarebytes just to make sure it is not a virus.

Also maybe run disk clean up to get rid of any old updates etc.

Bad driver could do that but you would have noticed when you were in Device manager. Take it you still have plenty room on the hard drive.

You could try running it in safe mode at start up to see if it starts ok that way.

Devil Fish, firstly, make sure that "fast startup" is turned on. Secondly, there's no need to play guessing games just yet because Windows may have identified and logged the culprit that's slowing the boot process. Have a read here. It works for Windows 10 too.
