Hi @atouiilyes!

The first thing you should check is if windows defender (or other antivirus) is scanning Meteor

99% of Windows / speed issues with Meteor are caused by anti-virus slowing down file operations, as there are A LOT of files involved in node apps.

I always add exclusions to Windows Defender for:

node.exe
7z.exe - This one is particularly important for installs, as Meteor is extracted using 7zip
meteor.bat
mongod.exe
and the meteor folder at C:\Users%USERNAME%\AppData\Local.meteor\

This speeds up installs, updates, and builds by about 500%
