Solved All program Installers are very slow

Windows 11 23H2

I have a problem where any installer that I run takes ages. It completes eventually but 'hangs' at various stages of the install.

I have been pretty 'ruthless' with disabling windows services and scheduled tasks, verging on 'reckless' to be honest since I have no backups.

So... Am wondering is anyone can enlighten me as to which services and/or scheduled tasks would be considered essential for program installers to run correctly. Also (or alternatively) which services or scheduled tasks may cause the kind of symptom I'm getting?

Thanks.

PS. I should add that I've done all the usual system health checks, clean boot, updates, etc... and it has nothing to do with my internet connection.

I think you better take a look in your services.msc to see what you switched off and post a list of those here.

I suppose it's equally possible that there are some services set to manual or auto that are nevertheless failing to start due to scheduled tasks being disabled. (I really went to town on scheduled tasks, kinda wish I hadn't now!)

I have been pretty 'ruthless' with disabling windows services
Windows Defender Firewall
This would be my top pick, it can basically break internet, windows updates, etc.
Microsoft Store Install Service
Windows Licence Manager Service
If it is a store app or it needs something from MS store, this could break it.

I prefer to run as little as possible and this is my minimum:

Where do I start?
You went ahead and disabled services, yes, disabled, not set them to manual, without remotely understanding their intricate functionality.
Then you come to the forum and wonder why it takes forever to install anything.
It is the equivalent of opening up the hood of a car and disabling components and then wondering why the car is back firing and dying.
I hope you have learned from this.

@FreeBooter has an excellent script to reset all services as a 'new' system.
The script will reboot once run, meanwhile, I'll go and let off some steam outside now. 😡🗯️

This is useful, thanks.
Please do a backup before experimenting.
It is a better way to learn and offers a safety net as there will not always be a script to save your system.

You also have the "Update Orchestrator Service" Disabled. Should be On.

While I appreciate this OP owning up to what he had done, 30 minutes after I first read his post I'm still shaking my head....and gritting my teeth that anyone would willy-nilly disable core services (without a backup or list of every thing that was done) and not expect Windows functions to break. I hesitate to think of what other changes have also been made.
At the very least IMO this calls for a repair install. Repair Install Windows 11 with an In-place Upgrade Tutorial

You have been given 2 pieces of advice. Restoring the services and a repair install. If you aren't willing to try the suggestions, what more do you expect of us.
