  1. slowness/scan


    I have left dell and got a Lenovo which im very happy with. My question is please, my wife has a dell inspirion 15 3000 series. When bought it was windows 8.2, when the free windows 10 upgrade was offered I ran the test that was provided and it was deemed this laptop would take windows 10, so went ahead, all went well. My wife does not have much on her pc mostly uses it for ancestary, etc.
    Now on start up and shut down it takes ages even to open a tile it takes a while. when it comes to doing a scan we use kaspersky, before that avg paid version, her scan takes 5/6 hours, mine takes about 22 minutes. but as it is scanning and look at the number of files it says it has scanned wow far more than mine and i have a lot more stuff on my laptop, is it possible that when it was upgraded to windows 10 did windows 8.2 also stay on pc?

    Can I check this any way, also can anything be done to speed things up or shall I dump yet another dell and buy her also Lenovo. thank you for any help/advice offered.

    :)

  2. scanned documents

    Hello,

    By default, scans are saved in a Scans folder inside the Pictures. Here are the steps on how to get there:

    • Press Windows and type pictures
    • Click Pictures and double-click the Scans folder.

    Furthermore, we suggest that you repair your Word application by following the steps on this

    link
    .

    Let us know how that turned out for you.

    I have done the steps listed above. They have not helped and I am still getting constant script errors, along with slow loading pages. Are there any other suggestions?

    Downloading is Slow from Store.

    Hi Mihir,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    From the description, I understand that Windows store downloads slowly.

    Step 1:

    I suggest you to clear Windows Store cache and check if it helps.

    Follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows logo key + R.
    • Type wsreset.exe on Run window and press enter.
    • Check if issue persists.

    You may try the following steps and check:



    Step 2:

    Try to run the sfc scan and check if the Windows store downloads faster:

    Run a System File Checker (SFC) scan to check for any file corruption.
    SFC scan will scan for corrupt system files on the computer and repair them.

    • Press Windows key + X, click
      Command Prompt (Admin)
      .
    • In the Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

      sfc /scannow
    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we’ll be glad to assist you.
