Truth Behind: Allow services additional time to start

Recommended Posts

I have been spending a lot...too much...time trying to figure out exactly what this setting does. Located inside a policy, Windows > General > Startup Options: Allow services additional time to start. 

So what does this actually change in the system, I presume registry, when this is enabled? The subsequent option allows setting: Maximum Time Allowed (adjust the timeout period for all services): 1, 5 and 10 minutes.

10 minutes for a system waiting for services to start? Before it does....what? Start MWB? That seems sketchy. I must be missing something here.

I have been running this disabled for more than 2 years.

Cheers & Thank you.
