On Win7 and XP, after you turn the power on then press [F8] (repeatedly). On Win 8, I don't know how to enter safe mode.

Quote
Safe mode is a diagnostic mode of a computer operating system (OS). It can also refer to a mode of operation by application software. In Windows, safe mode only allows essential system programs and services to start up at boot. Safe mode is intended to help fix most, if not all problems within an operating system. It is also widely used for removing rogue security software.
Source: Wikipedia

Safe mode is very useful for troubleshooting computer problems. When safe mode is on, only 'core' drivers are loaded and most autorun programs will be disabled. Not all but almost all autorun viruses and malwares can't run on safe mode.

If the program can run without massive slow down on safe mode, it is almost 100% not caused by the hardware. Then we can continue to the next inspections. You may need to turn off/on one by one the programs that listed in the autorun section, which can be shown using msconfig.exe.

So you mean safe mode of the OS, okay.

For Windows 10 1803 it is not possible to use F8 to start in safe mode.
You have to click on Restart with Shift and move through several menus ...

In Safe Mode - no change - Start time 30 s

I don't know if has any thing to do with what ever but, I know that MS has for some time now tried to
get people to stop using some old functions in the API.. One of them that I came across while porting some
32 bit code is the "OpenFIle" API which accepts a OFSTRUCT.
 
 That function still works as it did long ago which was originally a windows 3.x function but, it slows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
down now, delay returns each time you call it...

 So any use of this function needs to be replaced with CreateFile.
 
 I found this while porting some serial port code which I was using this to scan ports, I also notice it has a slow down
in normal use, too.

 There are a few obsolete IO functions MS has been trying to get coders to stop using and force them to upgrade the
code..

 There are other IO obsolete functions they at are trying very hard to remove..

 -hread, _hwrite, -lclose, _Icreate, _Iseek and those like it..

 any old code that uses these will still work but if you use these functions in newer code, I have found an extreme
delay before they return..

So you may want to check your code and update it.

there are no IO operations in the code, just a lot of TEdits, TLabels, ...
No other code...

Did you install the new one to c:\lazarus ?
Maybe you have an old lazarus somewhere and it got mixed up?

Yes, I have installed version 1.8.4 over 1.8.2 on c:\lazarus. Both Lazarus versions are 32 bits on a Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64 bits.

No, I have no previous Lazarus version before 1.8.2. So, version 1.8.4 is the very first update.

Is there something else that I should check?
Or should I uninstall Lazarus, delete all remaining folders and start it all from zero?

If you do uninstall, make sure you'll use the full power of CCleaner Free to make sure no traces are left in Registry.

Solved: I have uninstalled Lazarus, delete all remaining folders and files, and reinstalled it from zero.
