This is a second post because I don't think I listed it in the right forum. I recently inherited my step son's laptop. It was bought because he is a gamer, only it didn't have the punch he needed, so he got a new one, and I got his. I deleted all the games, ran malware bytes. I tried turning on defender and got a windows error 577. I downloaded avast so I would have some security. I requested Windows 10 in case that would fix the slowness. When I looked at the startup files, it appears that there are duplicates...
This laptop is very slow... is there anyway to check to see if it is functioning correctly? It is a Dell P28F inspiron.
thanks in advance -
