  1. PC super slow at opening programs, once they are open runs fine since windows update


    I tried everything I can think of to fix this, updated drivers, did a diagnosis/stress test on all my parts. No notice on anything going insanely high in task manager. Just honestly looking for any advice, my PC is not weak by any means. Literally right after the last update been this way since, happens with every program, even file explorer.



    Edit: October 13th update version 2004

  2. super slow down

    I have a laptop that's several years old now. It has Windows XP Pro SP 3 on it. It had been working just fine until a month or two ago, but just recently, it started slowing down so much. I've run several spyware/virus programs both in and out of safe mode. They've found a few things, but it didn't fix the problem. I've done a disk cleanup and disk defrag, but it's still intermittently slow. I have noticed there's a random SYSTEM task running in task manager. I've also noticed that when I open Internet Explorer, two iexplore.exe tasks open in task manager. Any suggestions?

    Super super super slow running Windows 10

    I have a Samsung touch screen computer. I upgraded to Windows 10 a couple of months ago. I have Norton antivirus. A couple of weeks ago my computer started to run slow. I did a "go back to a known good date" reset. worked for a while. then started to slow
    down. Now it takes over an hour from turning on computer to get to google web page. It works, but is super super slow. Do you have a suggestion to try so I dont lose my saved data. I have only got on set up (F8) once on many attempts. Thank you for any help.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
