        OK,

         

        Are you running an antivirus product at your host?

        If so then try excluding the VM from its file system checks.

          No antivirus running on host. I tried a ton of things:

          1- Installed a brand new Windows 10 VM and it ran just fine

          2- Tried to restore a past backup from early 2019, and that worked fine as well.

          3- I tried booting the problem VM in Safe Mode + Networking but the same problem, it takes forever to open even Task Manager.  I wasn't able to open Device Manager (devmgmt.msc) to check things there, it took forever so I quite on it.

          4- Tried to run chkdsk from Microsoft Troubleshooting Command tool , but no issues there, although it returned extremely fast!

          5- I tried all other options such as Diagnose and others except for Startup Disks and System Recovery Point, because I didn't have them, but nothing worked.

          5- I tried reinstalling VMware Tools multiple times but nothing changed either.

           

          I have no clue what to do next!
