        Noticed that when I check the Startup tab in Task Manager, all the programs indicate “Startup Impact Not Measured.”  I did see on a search that this may be a bug that began with Windows 10 20H2 19042.450.  Many steps tried.  Disabling all startup items, restarting, re-enabling, restarting – no change.  Others have tried a clean install – not planning on this one.

        Anyone else noticed this problem?  Able to solve it?

        I have two machines, both currently on 20H2 build 804 after updating yesterday and have never seen what you describe when I’ve gone to the Startup tab of Task Mangler. Currently I show tasks labeled as either Low or None for startup impact. Those labeled as None have been disabled by me, as I don’t care for them, like Cortana for example.

        Have had my current machines (custom built by mom and pop store where I know the owners) since the end of last August, and they both came with 2004 build 450 (19041.450). Never noticed the “Startup impact not measured” on that Win 10 version at all either.

        I’m willing to bet there’s a registry edit or Group Policy edit that will get it going again for you.

        Solved.

        Disabled the programs in “Startup” tab in Task Manager, then accessed System Configuration with “msconfig” and disabled all non Microsoft services (after hiding Microsoft services) and restarted twice.  Windows is now measuring “Startup Impact.”  Not sure if problem will come back since I am not sure how it started.  Note – still not getting a BIOS time, however that may be related to the hardware itself.

        Did not mention previously when stating “Startup Impact Not Measured,”  However, observed after fixing the problem.

          What is the issue?
          How are you not getting BIOS time?

          cheers, Paul

        No issue now that Startups are being measured except an observation that Startup Impact usually includes BIOS time – but not in my case probably limited to the hardware.
