WIndows 10: WSearch causing 30,000 millisecond timeouts on cold boots.

Windows 10

Asked by: Zorched


I bought a brand new computer with Windows 10 installed and it worked great until the 1607 update went through.  Now, every time the machine cold boots (from full power off state) the boot time takes significantly longer.  The original boot before the update, and any power-on system restart, takes about 10 seconds, tops, and most of that is entering my password.


If I cold boot, after entering my password (a local password, not a microsoft account login) it sits on the logon screen for about 30 seconds, the screen will go black with only the cursor for another minute, then finally comes to the desktop.

Upon checking the event viewer, the system kicks 4 errors:

3 of the event ID 7011: A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the WSearch service.

1 of event ID 10016: The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID
 and APPID
 to the user NT AUTHORITYSYSTEM SID (S-1-5-18) from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container Unavailable SID (Unavailable). This security permission can be modified using the Component Services administrative tool.

The second error happens on every boot, whether it boots fast or not.  Windows search service is already set (by Microsoft) to delayed startup in the services control panel.

Obviously the additional time is accounted for in the 90,000 milliseconds of timeout on the WSearch service, but I can't figure out how to make it go away.

Outlook is not installed, nor is any Microsoft office product other than OneNote, so the "Outlook with extensions" bug that I found here doesn't apply in this instance.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Dear Microsoft executives: it was a real classy move (Sarcasm included here free of charge) to make the online help link in the event viewer go to a generic sales site.  Real nice.  It really shows you care about the customer.
