  1. Computer slow after update


    After the last update I immediately noticed that my computer was taking much longer to load my starting apps. What once took 5 seconds now sometimes takes up to a minute! After a bit of use, I found that the same applied to not just startup, but everything. Loading steam, opening games, opening browsers.


    Once things are loaded they don't seem to have the same problems, and if they do its minimal. However, the fact that near instant loading now takes a long time after an update is really upsetting to me.


    Has anyone else been experiencing these issues? If so, what did you do to fix them?

    :)

  4. Computer slow after update

    slowness in computer usage.

    Hi John,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate if you could answer a few questions to narrow down to the issue.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?

    • What makes you think that system is running slow? Is it when you are trying to run application?

    • Did you install any third party security application?
    From the screenshot that you have provided, I understood that it’s not the issue with the disk usage. The slowness might be due to the memory usage.

    As an initial troubleshooting step, I suggest you to run maintenance task and check if it helps.


    • Press Windows key + X from the desktop.

    • Select Control panel and Select System and Security.

    • Click on Troubleshoot common computer problems under System and maintenance.

    • Now Run maintenance task under
      System and security
      .
    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
