    Slow computer


    My computer started running very slow, I re installed Win 10 after many other options. The problem still persisted. I have now found by going to "system configuration" and disabling what I can, the problem is solved. How can I re introduce features one at a time to determine which is causing the problem????

    :)

    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.
